If there’s one feature about WordPress that sets it apart from other content management systems (CMS) out there, it’s customization. Custom fields in WordPress are a built-in part of the CMS that lets you expand not only the meta-data and information you display, but also completely change the functionality and utility of a post or page. We want to help you to understand the fundamentals. We are going to discuss what a custom field is, why they’re useful, and provide some real-world examples of how they’re used.
