I want to create a custom field, let's say Tickets in which I can store different links for each post. For example:

On a post page I have a button called "Buy ticket" which has a specific link, also on another post I have the same "Buy ticket" but with another link and so on ... How can I make this ? Thanks

Please revise your old questions and accept the answers where it applies (this 0% accept rate doesn't do you any good)... I checked them and most were answered by very knowledgeable folks of this site. . . . . While we are at it, please take a look at the FAQ too. – brasofilo Jul 4 '12 at 16:36

lol, now somebody could help me with this ? – agis Jul 4 '12 at 17:50
As a matter of fact, this is a very basic issue. Research this Stack and take a look at the Codex. I'm sure you'll be able to sort it out. – brasofilo Jul 4 '12 at 17:57
@Alecs The downvotes you received are for the lack of any research effort (code) whatsoever. :) – its_me Jul 5 '12 at 4:36

Lets go with an example...

Custom Field Name: buy-ticket
Custom Field Value: http://example.com/link-to-ticket/

And you said, you want a button called "Buy ticket" linking to the Custom Field Value. This how you do it:

<a href="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'buy-ticket', true); ?>" title="Buy a ticket right away!">
    <span>Button text or code here</span>

SOURCE: WordPress Codex Function Reference/get_post_meta

PS: You can disregard the <span> tag. I used it for cosmetic purposes. :)
