Support » Fixing WordPress » ordered custom fields, ordered meta

  • By default the_meta prints out custom fields alphabetically. A rather basic behaviour unsuitable for even very simple tasks (e.g.: printing the keys “title”, “first name” and “surename” in the correct order)

    Presenting them differently is possible by arranging the custom fields in the template using get_post_custom_values.

    But updating the template every time a new custom key gets added, isnĀ“t a solution.

    get_post_meta instead, could do the trick. Unfortunately custom keys do not store any additional data, only the key-value pair itself. Not even the date of their own creation is stored.

    Any ideas?
