With Simple Fields you can add any kind of custom fields to your pages, posts and attachments.
Best thing since sliced bread.
I have been able to customize my WordPress site with this plugin exactly as I have liked. The only reason I didn't give the full five stars is that I've found putting text into a text area often appears duplicated in the default WordPress text area so I do not use that option.
This plugin is very powerful and the repeatable field groups are an amazing feature. The functions offer lots of flexibility for extracting information.
I did run into some snags extracting file info, especially for repeating file field types. The arrays did not return some basic file info such as file name. I had to use some of the WordPress built-in functions like
basename(get_attached_file(754)) to look up an attribute by post id. I also ran into some difficulty creating extended_return_values arrays for repeating file field types.
I also ran into an issue where null values were returned in key-value pairs called by the plugin's built-in functions. This seemed to occur whenever a field or a field's value were deleted. I had to create a custom script to handle these.
On a positive note, this plugin is a simpler and more affordable alternative to the
Advanced Custom Fields plugin, which charges for some of the advanced features that
Simple Fields offers for free (like repeatable field groups).
looked for this for a long time. very simple and intuitive. the file uploads are especially useful.
This is really great plugin.
This plugin let you create customizable posts. For example on PaDOG.net (portal where you can download online games and use them on your website) - there is field for SWF location, ZIP location, description and controls.
After filling every field, the game page looks exactly how I want it - swf location is used to embed the game, zip file is in button, description and controls are in proper positions. It's much easier than if users would have to create the whole page from scratch.
This plugin changed the way I use WordPress. It makes it so easy to use and organize custom content across posts and pages, and especially works very nicely with custom post types, too.

If I could only use one plugin for WordPress — this would be the one.
Really solved my Headache...Thanks alot
Straight forward, effective, useful! And it works!!!
Prompt response and accurate support from the plugin author.
I use this on nearly every project and I love it.
I always start off doing everything I can not to use it for the sake of having fewer plugins, but it almost invariably ends up being the best, quickest, and most powerful solution to whatever data entry problem I'm having.
The learning curve is decently easy (if you can code) and once you've got it, you'll find yourself amazed at the ease and possibility. It has the ability to easily set and change fields from PHP, which is so useful!
You can use this one alone to do so many things you would have installed more plugins for.
Don't spend hours coding some crap yourself. Use this. Light, quick, excellent.
Really the best plugin for custom fields
