    I don’t believe I do have a ‘filter’ set up for custom (meta) fields, but I do have a method to display them. However, after switching to WP_Query Class, it has allowed me to add more filters to the plugin. There were a few things that I left out intentionally to add later, and meta data was one of them unfortunately. That and the timeline filter (…and maybe a few others) were some which required a certain design, and I didn’t want to over burden myself already. I do plan to add it later down the road though.

    If your just trying to display them. You might want to double check and/or triple check your labels and values. Everything should be fully functional to display it, so there’s probably a typo somewhere. Usually a common mistake.

    Anyways, glad you enjoy the plugin. I still give Kalin most of the credit for creating the framework, but there’s still more to come =)

    Sorry, I don’t quite get this.

    So I you saying I can currently do it or I can’t?

    And if I can how?

    To filter by the custom fields isn’t currently supported, but to display them from each post/page you can.

    This is the internal shortcode that I am referring to.
    [post_meta name=”custom_field_name”] – page/post custom field value. Correct ‘name’ parameter required

    This kind of copy and paste from the listed short codes is really not clear.

    Please provide a clear example, lets say for a custom field called “field-1”, which has a value of “value-1”.

    How would I then proceed to create a page with only posts that have the custom field value for field-1=value-1?


    Actually, on second review I see what you mean.;/

    I can add a custom field value by adding:

    <–option value=”[post_permalink]”>[post_title] -[post_meta name=”field-1″]</option–>

    What I want to do however is filter out all posts without a specific value.

    So, show post if field-1=value-1, otherwise don’t show.

    I notice that you have an advanced custom fields tab, but when I select it, nothing happens.
