I'm building a website using the Simple Fields plugin to mark a post as featured and to add a simple slide show. I've read the documentation page and they only explain how to do things on the backend.

So I have some fields attached to a post, and now I want to get those values on the front-end.

How do I get those values?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I'm pretty sure that plugin just hooks into the meta fields so in order from them to display you can echo the get_post_meta.

For instance:

 <?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'the_name_of_your_custom_field', true); ?>
