PHP Version required: 5.4.x or later

If you have installed the plugin directly from plugins repository through wordpress backend then all you need is just to activate it.

If you have downloaded the plugin as .zip file, then extract the zip file content and upload the directory inside your wp-content/plugins dir. Once done, go to your plugins page on wp backend, and you will then be able to activate the plugin.

Once activated go to user list page (normally /wp-admin/users.php), on mouse over, each user entry row will show a new action link “Meta Editor”. Click on the link to access meta editor page.

Thank you for this plugin, it is really great. I do not understand why more users do not use it, because I have not found any better. Thank you, Peter

As the name of the plugin says: it's a simple plugin that does exactly what it promises and it does this with an easy to use interface directly from the User admin.
