I'm new to wordpress and I am trying to understand these custom fields. I read the wordpress codex page refering to custom fields but I have some questions. I take for example my site. I created a custom field named "country_flag". I want this custom field to store for every post a link to a icon displaying a country flag.
This icon i want to place on my site after the post title to show guest in which language the post is.
On the codex page it tells me to place
<?php the_meta(); ?> in my template. But if i have more custom fields and I want only one to be shown in my template where i put the
<?php the_meta(); ?>, what code should I place?
