Function Reference/the meta

跳转至: 导航搜索


This is a simple built-in function for displaying custom fields for the current post, known as the "post-meta" (stored in the wp_postmeta table). It formats the data into an unordered list (see output below).

It must be used from within The Loop or in a theme file that handles data from a single post (e.g. single.php). the_meta() will ignore meta_keys (i.e. field names) that begin with an underscore.

For more information on this tag, see Custom Fields.


%%% <?php the_meta(); ?> %%%


This tag has no parameters.


<p>Meta information for this post:</p>
<?php the_meta(); ?>

Output from the_meta:

<ul class='post-meta'>
<li><span class='post-meta-key'>your_key:</span> your_value</li>
