Documentation
By , for WP 3.8.1

Seems as very powerfull, but documentation is awfull. On homeapge of the plugin i found several different ways to call values in template, non of them worked for the most. (Repeatable fields) One that worked (80-90%) i found at Google, not even mentioned on documentation site.

Support at WordPress plugin site give you sometimes answers from author, again those solution not mentioned at plugin homepage.

Plugin homepage is not code friendly, just mess to read code. If you copy code for sure you get wrong "".

Best thing since sliced bread.

Excellent

I have been able to customize my WordPress site with this plugin exactly as I have liked. The only reason I didn't give the full five stars is that I've found putting text into a text area often appears duplicated in the default WordPress text area so I do not use that option.

Very Powerful, But Difficult Using File Field Type
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin is very powerful and the repeatable field groups are an amazing feature. The functions offer lots of flexibility for extracting information.

I did run into some snags extracting file info, especially for repeating file field types. The arrays did not return some basic file info such as file name. I had to use some of the WordPress built-in functions like basename(get_attached_file(754)) to look up an attribute by post id. I also ran into some difficulty creating extended_return_values arrays for repeating file field types.

I also ran into an issue where null values were returned in key-value pairs called by the plugin's built-in functions. This seemed to occur whenever a field or a field's value were deleted. I had to create a custom script to handle these.

On a positive note, this plugin is a simpler and more affordable alternative to the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, which charges for some of the advanced features that Simple Fields offers for free (like repeatable field groups).

exactly what i needed

looked for this for a long time. very simple and intuitive. the file uploads are especially useful.

Great plugin, easy customization
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is really great plugin.

I use it on http://www.padog.net and http://www.notsocasual.com.

This plugin let you create customizable posts. For example on PaDOG.net (portal where you can download online games and use them on your website) - there is field for SWF location, ZIP location, description and controls.

After filling every field, the game page looks exactly how I want it - swf location is used to embed the game, zip file is in button, description and controls are in proper positions. It's much easier than if users would have to create the whole page from scratch.

straightforward and incredible useful
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin changed the way I use WordPress. It makes it so easy to use and organize custom content across posts and pages, and especially works very nicely with custom post types, too.

Check out the quick explanation of how to use at http://simple-fields.com/documentation and you'll be up and running in minutes.

If I could only use one plugin for WordPress — this would be the one.
