Custom post fields

I am setting up a network of aggregator blogs using the FeedWordpress plugin. All of the feed and publisher information that FWP provides is stored in the custom post fields.

Is there a way - using your template "tags" - to extract that custom field information? For instance, what I'd like to do is display a byline something like

Normally, to do this, I would just code the FWP template fields inside the index.php or single.php files. I suppose I could do this with your templates as well, but I'd hate to break one and later have my modifications overwritten.

So, can I access the custom fields somehow?

The theme is not prepared to display custom fields. You would have to put the code to retrieve the custom field value somewhere into the theme files. I.e. into bfa_postinfo.php,

somewhere before

PHP Code:
$postinfo $postinfo_string
code like this:

PHP Code:
$from_xyz_blog PHP_CODE TO RETRIEVE THE CUSTOM FIELD VALUE
and somewhere below

PHP Code:
$postinfo $postinfo_string
code like this:

PHP Code:
$postinfo str_replace("%from-xyz-blog%"$from_xyz_blog$postinfo); 

Then you would be able to use %from-xyz-blog% as a postinfo tag at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Post / Page Info Items

I was just about to ask about Custom Fields and saw this thread. I'm not good at php coding, so I want to be sure I'm getting this-

I'm wanting to use the Custom Fields in my sidebar to have this:
Listening to:
Reading:
Event:
(Etc.-I have a list of 5 things)

Can I do this?

Thanks,
Ash

Thanks Flynn,
I couldn't get that plugin to unzip
I have the 'More Fields' plugin and see the custom fields boxes at the bottom of the write/edit page in site admin.
But the directions say coding needs to be added and I'm not sure where to add it.

And that content is going to stay the same throughout the whole site? Because then I don't see why you'd use custom fields at all. Custom fields are supposed to add certain individual content to each post.

i also installed custom fields template, and i modded the bfa_postinfo.php:

Quote:
$infoplus = the_meta();
$postinfo = $postinfo_string;
$postinfo = str_replace("%infoplus%", $infoplus, $postinfo);
This will display the meta info under the title and above de footer (twice) but i want to make a div and put it to float-right in the post and display the info there like this: http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/4982/postwidget.png. Can anyone help ? Thanks.

You can use the %meta% post info item. Your byline should be something like that:

Code:
Posted by %author-posts-link% from <a href="%meta('syndication_source_uri')%">%meta('syndication_source')%</a> on %date('d#/m#/y')%
I am using it.

So, I am using the solution above BUT it does not work with posts that are not syndicated, giving me the
Code:
Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Bad arguments. in /var/www/wordpress/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/functions/bfa_postinfo.php on line 16
Any way to avoid this? Is there a way to filter some of the post info according to the category, maybe?
