How to get custom field value with shortcode

August 31, 2012 Custom field is a very useful functionality in wordpress. We can use it to show extra information on our blog post or page. I explain about shortcode in my previous post. If you are looking to build the shortcode for custom field, here is the solution: Put the below code into your functions.php /*************************/ add_shortcode('custom_field', 'shortcode_field'); function shortcode_field($atts){ extract(shortcode_atts(array( 'post_id' => NULL, ), $atts)); if(!isset($atts[0])) return; $field = esc_attr($atts[0]); global $post; $post_id = (NULL === $post_id) ? $post->ID : $post_id; return get_post_meta($post_id, $field, true); } /*************************/ You can use the below shortcode to show the custom field value. [custom_field "custom_field_key"] [custom_field "custom_field_key" post_id=1]
