Is there a way to find the ids of the pages who contain meta tags/custom fields with a certain key-value pair?

Say, for instance, that I wanted to find all of the pages who had a meta-tag/custom-field key of "weather" with a value of "raining", is there a way to do that?

Why not? Same custom field parameters in query should apply and you can use post_type argument to limit query to pages alone.

I wasn't saying the solution could not also apply to posts, I was simply stating that the solution must apply to pages – cmcculloh Jun 27 '11 at 18:56
@cmcculloh sorry, I got tone of your question as is this is something unlikely, but it seems rather simple. Unless I am missing something? Does my answer fits what you need? – Rarst Jun 27 '11 at 18:59
ah, see, I'm a big newb, so I have no idea what is likely and what is unlikely. I'll edit my question a little. Thanks for the feedback! I'm not sure if your answer fits what I need or not, I'm still looking in to it... – cmcculloh Jun 27 '11 at 19:21
Yes, this works, thank you! – cmcculloh Jul 9 '11 at 17:55
