I am really looking forward to have a clear picture of Why Meta data is being used for the Posts/Pages?
I have always been wondering on how Meta data is different from the
Custom Fields of Posts. I have read about the Meta-Data on certain websites, and got to know that the definition is quite confusing. This goes like:
Meta data are used to add some more details or data to the posts/pages.
Now, what I feel, is when we add fields to the post type, we are also creating the same details/extra information for the same. Please give some more details in a brief way so that I can understand the difference between Meta data and Custom Fields in a POST/PAGE.
