  • Just learned this… You can display custom fields outside of the loop with the following code.

    <?php
    global $wp_query;
    $postid = $wp_query->post->ID;
    echo get_post_meta($postid, 'Your-Custom-Field', true);
    wp_reset_query();
    ?>

    Hope that helps and good-luck!

    Not work. I habe a blank page with this code. Is not ok !

    A blank page is a PHP error. Dig into your server’s error logs to find out why the code didn’t work.

    Turn of the igit-related-posts-with-thumb-images-after-posts plugin and things should work again. Also, you may need to go in via FTP and delete the plugin (back it up first if needed).

    Hey, I want to put this code to show the price (custom field) after every image generated by this pugin.
