    I would say yes, you can adapt the plugin for that custom field. It all depends on the $wp_query global that contains all the data. Print out its data to see if the custom field data is there or not (requested from DB).

    I have a plugin Directory Listing and created a form field that is displayed by this code:

    <div class="field-value wpbdp-field-eventdate meta"><label>Event Date:</label>

    It's not a custom field, but is one I made when I built the form. The plugin creates a directory but I want to use it as an event list calendar. I want to display the excerpts and full listings in ascending order, meaning what's up next followed by events happening later on future dates. How would I do this with your plugin, or can you recommend something that will do this?

    Also, my web host system installed wp 3.5 and your plugin doesn't seem to show up anywhere after installing. I know it doesn't officially support 3.5, but will it soon, or should I try to get an installation of the earlier version for this to work?

    Thanks.

    By the way, the directory plugin won't let me set the field as not meta.
