Are there plugins or hooks to editing custom fields just from the posts listing in admin panel?

Don't understand what you're wanting to do here. – anu Mar 31 '11 at 7:55
For each post in the list of posts in admin panel I see the author, categogory of post, tags, number of comments and the date of publishing. Some of them(category and tags) i could edit by clicking properties of post. Is there posibility to add custom fields for each posts right in the posts listing? This help me don't go into the edit post every time, when I want to change only one custom field. Thanks. – glazsasha Mar 31 '11 at 8:08

The easiest way is to use a plugin like Custom Field Template. This adds a custom field column to the "Manage Posts" page by default.

oh, it's exatctly what I want, but for half. The custom fields in the posts listing show up. But it's posible to edit customs fields just for one of the posts, i can't edit custom field for the several posts one time and i need click property. Any idea? anyway thanks, anu! – glazsasha Mar 31 '11 at 12:30
