    As explained in the readme and plugin documentation, URLs and other submitted data are attached to posts as custom fields. That way you can use them however is required in your theme.

    Ok so for someone like me with no programing background. How would i go about to use these custom fields to be displayed.

    My aim is to let anyone submit a title + link (url) and have it displayed in a list. I thought your plugin would be a good fit, but maybe it is not if i dont know how to use those custom fields and have any background in programing.

    Basically to display custom fields you just add a snippet of code to your theme where you want the custom fields to display. The WordPress loop is a good place to try something like the following:

    <?php $key_1_value = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'key_1', true );
    // check if the custom field has a value
    if ( ! empty( $key_1_value ) ) {
    	echo $key_1_value;
    } ?>

    Just change the name of the key “key_1” to that of the custom field you would like to display. More info here:
