i've found out that there are custom fields but i'm not able to activate them in the admin panel .. :( i've checked the screen options but there's no custom fields - looks like it depends on the template i'm using. any ideas how to modify it in order to enable custom fields for posts?


  • When you say no custom fields - do you mean that even if you check it in the screen options, the meta box does not even appear? Or that it does show, but there is no custom field data? Mar 15, 2011 at 14:39

The visibility of custom fields on the post edit screen is controlled on the post edit page. There's a button called "Screen Options" towards the top of the screen.

Screen Options Button

Clicking that button will display all of the available boxes and panels for the edit page. If custom fields is not visible here, then either your theme or a plug-in is disabling the feature.
