Hierarchical Custom Fields


This plugin will allow a user to add/edit/delete parent and child custom fields within a hierarchical structure.

For example, if each post referred to a type of grant sponsor- you would have the ability to enter different primary sponsors and then enter and select sub-sponsors within the parent organization.


  1. Upload hierarchical-custom-fields.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
