List More Custom Field Names

What is the default number of custom field names/keys that WordPress lists in the admin when writing/editing pages and posts?

WordPress only lists up to 30.

How many custom field names/keys does this plugin list in the admin when writing/editing pages and posts?

By default, this plugin lists up to 200. You can customize this value.

How can I customize the default number of custom field name/keys listed in the admin when writing/editing pages and posts?

There are two ways you can customize this value (in both examples, change 100 to the number you'd like to use):

  1. In your wp-config.php file (in the root directory of your blog), add the following line of code (making sure it is within the opening <?php and closing ?> PHP tags):

    define( 'CUSTOM_FIELD_NAMES_LIMIT', 100 );

  2. Somewhere -- ideally in a mu-plugin or site-specific plugin, or less ideally your active theme's functions.php file -- hook the 'c2c_list_more_custom_field_names' filter and return the number you'd like:

    add_filter( 'c2c_list_more_custom_field_names', create_function( '$limit', 'return 100;' ) );

Does this plugin include unit tests?

Yes.
