Works perfectly
By , for WP 4.1.1

works like described. With some php knowledge you could make great things - like dropdowns with dynamicly loaded content - I didn´t found in other plugins of this kind.

Great useful plugin
By , for WP 4.0

I've been using this plugin for the past few years and it's really handled adding custom fields easy on posts (with bonus labels in case you forget the formatting/requirements needed for the fields). I used it for Big Screenshot, Build Notes, Author URL and more. To setup the custom fields template isn't super easy at first but once you've done it once, you'll never forget. A great free plugin.

Very best

Strange admin interface, but it does its job
By , for WP 3.8

My website is bilingual and one of the custom fields is used to provide the title in the second language. The plugin is very helpful to keep everything simple for that.
The admin interface is quite strange and confusing at first, but after the setup you don't really need to check it.

Nice One!

Extremely Good, some geek skills required
By , for WP 3.6

I have used this plugin on dozens of sites. I have never been able to break it. It's been a huge asset!

As you'll see in the review results, it's not for everyone. If you're strictly a WYSIWYG type of person who loathes code, you will have difficulty, so don't bother. And the interface isn't all pretty. After making your templates, you may need to go down to the other options and look around.

I use it to display stuff on the sidebar with shortcodes (go to Global Settings, and be sure to tick "Use the shortcode in the widget" and possibly "use autop function"!), and just about anywhere else in a theme. If you want to put custom fields into certain spots in your theme code, some PHP is required. I am a theme developer, so this is a cakewalk for me. If you're not, you may want to try ACF.

Big, big thanks to Mr. Miyashita!
