Getting Started
  1. Using wpView with Custom Field plugins: If you already have some custom field managing plugin like “Advanced Custom Fields”, “Custom Field Suite”, “Toolset Types”, “WordPress Creation Kit” or “Custom Content Type Manager”, you should activate according plugin icons in Dashboard > Display Fields admin page. Just click on according plugin icon-button. The active plugin icon becomes colored.

  2. Managing Custom Field views: After enabling a Custom Field plugin, choose the view mode using two large images-buttons (Table and Custom View). The default Table view displays all custom fields in a table. If you want to show different custom fields with separate view you should use the “Custom Separate View” option and set appropriate view type for each custom field type.

  3. Managing Custom Field displaying location: Next to the custom field displaying views drop-down you can find custom field location options. Just select one of location options.
