What are the custom field in WordPress ?

We will add extra information to your post by using custom fields. Custom Fields are a form of meta-data that allows you to store arbitrary information with each WordPress post.

Meta-data is handled with key/value pairs. The key is the name of the meta-data element. The value is the information that will appear in the meta-data list on each individual post that the information is associated with.

To display the Custom Fields for each post, use the the_meta() template tag.

To fetch meta values use the get_post_meta() function.

For example we use custom fields:-

ID, ‘key’, true); ?>
