What Are Custom Fields?

Custom Fields is a well-known concept of personalizing WordPress content by adding additional data / information to your WordPress posts and pages. Using custom fields it is possible to add different type of content fields per post/page basis and personalize these fields with post/page individual values.

Let’s take a regular blog post as an example. By default, your blog post has a standard set of information like title, excerpt, date, category, tags, author. What if this is not enough for your blog and you wish to add some additional information like Sub Header, Reading Time, Audio URL (podcasts), Second Image. This is exactly the case of using Custom Fields. With TheGem you can create dynamic pages without the use of code.
