Custom Write Panels/Extra Fields

Posted on 2011-05-10

I have been searching around for a easy plugin to add extra fields to a wordpress post pr page. I came across More Fields, but it lacks all documentation.

The biggest thing is I am looking for one to tell:

if this field has data, then show, if not dont.

Any ideas on where to get a plugin to get this functionality?

    As for showing the field based on if it has data or not, I am not sure this is available with this plugin but you could accomplish this with some jquery.

    Have you tried the plug-in called "Flutter"? I found it the other day. It has some very nice features for custom write panels.

    $myfield = get_post_meta($post_id, $key);
      echo $myfield;

    Show all your custom fields with  the_meta();
