  • Custom Field List Widget

    This plugin creates sidebar widgets with lists of the values of a custom field (name). The listed values can be (hyper-)linked in different ways.
    One possibility is to create a list of all values of a custom field (name), which will be groupped their post (or page) and (hyper-) linked automatically to this post (or page).
    Another possibility is that you can create a list of all unique values of of a custom field (name) and specify links as you like (or not).

    In other words: This plugin allows you to create lists of one category of meta information (on each list). The custom field names and values can be used as categorizable tags and with this plugin you can create lists of tags of one category.

    One example of usage could be: a list of the guest names of your podcast episodes. (with the default tags you can set the names as tags but the names will probably be mixed with other content describing tags)

    This plugin supports multiple widgets (You can have more than one list at the same time in one sidebar.) and uses the jQuery framework (which is delivered with WP automatically) to make the hide and show effects e.g. of a parted list (if the browser of a visiter of your does not allow or support Javascript the full list will be visible).
    Furthermore this plugin has got a Add On for the famous K2 theme. You can use it with the K2 Sidebar Manager.

    Lists with more than one hierarchy level

    (since v0.9.5)

    You can define several custom field names for a post. The values of these custom field names will be taken from the data base like they were arranged in columns side by side. All the values will be sorted by one of these columns. You can choose which column resp. custom field name should be the sort criterion. Further it is possible to hide this column (which should be decisive for the sorting) in the list in the sidebar.


    An easy to understand example is probably a list of posts which are categorized by special dates. In this example the custom field names are "realdate" and "datename". As "realdate" you set good sortable text strings or numbers like 20091005 (consists of year, month, day) and as "datename" you can set e.g. "October 2009" which is probably not in the same way sortable as the numbers. This way you can of course build probably more useful lists. A more colourful case of use which works this way is probably if you make list of posts grouped by a none-Gregorian calendar. You can use as datenames e.g. names of months and years of the Chinese calendar. In this example the "datenname"s would be the main list elements and the post titles sub elements of them. The "realdate" would be hidden via the option "hide this".

    If you want to create a more sub-divided list (instead of "datename" something like "year", "month", "day") then you should keep an eye on the right hierarchy order. (e.g. 0. "realdate" (sort by / hide this), 1. "year", 2. "month", 3. "day"). The post titles will be sub elements of "day" and "day" will be sub elements of the months and so on - in the list in the side bar widget. (But for this special case there other plugins like [Collapsing Archives](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/collapsing-archives/ "Collapsing Archives on wordpress.org"))

    Other and even better examples (in English) are the book lists at the weblog of Larry Wilson. He makes list of the books he has read.

    There are some basic things you should be aware of:

    • Overall you can use 5 hierarchical levels (if you want to have more then write me an email).
    • Every post you want to have in the sidebar list should have the same custom field names (The custom field values can differ from post to post.)
    • The custom field name which should be excluded from the list should be the first or the last in the list on the widgets page (on the admin site).

    Usage of "sort values by the last word"

    (available since v0.7)

    You can influence which word the last word is by using a underline character between the words. If you make a underline character between two words it will be seen as one word.


    names with more than one first and family name

    Jon Jake Stewart Brown
    the last word is Brown

    Jon Jake Stewart_Brown
    the last word is "Stewart Brown"

    The a underline character will not be displayed in the sidebar.

    The guest list example - only a given number of list items are visible (If Javascript is available the list can be parted like this. The plugin uses for that the jQuery which is delivered with WP)

    The guest list example - only a given number of list items are visible and a item with sub items is inflated ("Guest 3" was a guest in 3 episodes)

    The guest list example - full list with layout 2 (since v0.9)

    widgets page in the site admin area (v1.0) - widgets preferences

    If you click on "Set the Links" then this dialog appears. (v0.9.3) - widgets preferences

    widgets page in the site admin area (since v0.9) - on Windows servers you have to declare the locale string in the Windows format (consists of language name, country name and the code page number). Furthermore you have to set the corresponding code page name for the PHP mbstring module.

    widgets page in the site admin area (since v0.9) - if it is not possible to set the locale and the default locale on the server is not corresponding to your blog charset then it is most likely that the list elements will be not in the correct alphabetical order

    custom field beneath the post editor (WP 2.7.1) - this is the place where you create custom fields and define the custom field values which are visible in the list of this widget

  • Custom Field List Widget / Liste Benutzerdefinierter Felder Widget

    Dieses Plugin erzeugt eine Liste aus den Werten eines Spezialfeldes, gruppiert mehrfach vorkommende Werte und verlinkt die Werte zu ihren Beiträgen. Diese Liste wird dann in einer (widged-fähigen) Seitenleiste angezeigt. Man kann also eine Liste von Metainformationen einer Kategorie (= Name des Benutzerdefinierten Feldes) bzw. Tags/Schlagwörter eine Kategorieaflisten.

    Ein gutes Anwedungsbeispiel ist z.B.: eine List der Gäste Ihrer Podcast-Episoden (Man könnte die Gäste namen sicherlich auch als normale Tags den Beiträgen zuordnen. Allerdings würden dann die Namen mit den übrigen, den Beitragsinhalt beschreibenden Tags in einer Liste/Wolke auftauchen.)

    Dieses Plugin unterstützt ab v0.8 auch Mehrfach-Widgets (Es ist möglich mehrere Listen (Widgets) in einer Seitenleiste gleichzeitig anzeigen zu lassen) und verwendet das jQuery Framework, das in WP enthalten ist, um die Anzeigeeffekte zu erzeugen. Sollte der Browser eines Besuchers oder Besucherin Javascript nicht unterstützen oder nicht erlauben, dann werden die Listen komplett angezeigt. Darüberhinaus hat dieses Plugin auch ein Add On für das bekannte K2 Theme. Sie können es mit dem K2 Sidebar Manager verwenden.)

    Hinweise zur Benutzung

    Hinweis zum Erstellen von Listen mit mehr als einer Hierarchiestufe

    (ab v0.9.5 verfügbar)

    Sie können pro Beitrag mehrere Namen Benutzerdefinierter Felder definieren. Mit jedem Name eines Benutzerdefinierten Feldes wird die Liste, die von diesem Plugin erzeugt wird um eine Abstufung erweitert. Die Werte die einem Name eines Benutzerdefinierten Feldes zugeordnet wurden, werden vor dem Erstellen der Liste so aus der Datenbank ihres Blogs geladen als wären die Datenreihen spaltenweise nebeneinander angeordnet. Sie können auch einen Namen eines Benutzerdefinierten Feldes bzw. die Werte eines Namens eines Benutzerdefinierten Feldes bestimmen, nach denen alle Daten dieser virtuellen Spalten sortiert werden. Diese Sortierspalte bzw. Hierarchiestufe kann auch mittels der Option "nicht anzeigen" aus der Liste in der Seitenleiste ausgeblendet werden.


    Sie können zum Beispiel eine Liste erzeugen, in der bestimmte Beiträge nach einem nicht-Gregorianischen Kalender z.B. dem Chinesischen Kalender gruppiert sind. Dazu könnten Sie beispielsweise die Benutzerdefinierten Felder mit den Namen "realdate" (Hierarchiestufe 0), "element_und_tier" (Hierarchiestufe 1) und "station" (Hierarchiestufe 2) einrichten und vergeben. "element_und_tier" würden die entsprechenden Bezeichnungen des Jahres enthalten. "station" die Bezeichnung für die Jahreszeit. "realdate" würde in diesem Beispiel das Datum des jeweiligen Beitrags in einer gut sortierbaren Form z.B. 20091014 enthalten. Hier wäre es sicherlich auch sinnvoll "realdate" nicht anzeigen zu lassen.
    Auf diese Weise mit Metainformationen versehen, würden die Beiträge z.B. so aufgelistet werden:

    • Erde / Ratte
      • Hanlu
        • Beitrag 1 (z.B. für 20081014)
    • Erde / Büffel
      • Hanlu
        • Beitrag 1 (z.B. für 20091014)
        • Beitrag 2 (z.B. für 20091015)

    weitere wichtige Hinweise:

    • Sie können insgesamt 5 Hierarchiestufen einsetzen (Wenn sie mehr Stufen verwenden wollen, schreiben Sie mir einen E-Mail.).
    • Jeder der Beiträge, der in der Liste in der Seitenleiste angezeigt werden soll, muss die gleichen Namen der Benutzerdefinierten Felder haben (Die Werte der Benutzerdefinierten Feldes dürfen sich natürlich von Beitrag zu Beitrag unterscheiden.)
    • Der Name eines Benutzerdefinierten Feldes, der nicht in der Liste in der Seitenleiste angezeigt werden soll, sollte entweder der erste oder der letzte der Namen der Benutzerdefinierten Felder in der Listen auf der Widgetsseite im Adminbereich sein.

    Hinweis zur Verwendung der Option "die Werte nach deren letztem Wort sortieren"

    (ab v0.7 verfügbar)

    Sie können bestimmen, welches Wort das letzte Wort ist, in dem Sie einen Unterstrich statt einem Leerzeichen zwischen den Wörtern verwenden. Wenn Sie ein _ zwischen zwei Wörtern verwenden, werden diese als ein Wort angesehen.


    Namen mit mehr als einem Vor- und Nachnamen

    Friedrich Wilhelm von Mustermann
    Das letzten Wort ist hier "Mustermann".

    Friedrich Wilhelm von_Mustermann
    Das letzten Wort ist hier "von Mustermann".

    Die Unterstriche _ werden nicht in der Seitenleiste angezeigt.

nr. 2 -- Betreff / subject: Guests with one entry

Thank you for this widget. It's very useful. I am using it to display short stories by authors which I have translated into Bulgarian on my site. Some of these author are present by only one short story, and right now, in order to display the short story's title under the authors name as a single list item, I have to manually change the code every time you update. Would it be possible for you to add an option for this in the future versions?

nr. 3 -- Betreff / subject: Re: Guests with one entry

Yes, i'm thinking to add such an option is no problem. But i have some questions: Are the short story titles equal the post titles? Or did use another custom field for that? (Is the custom field name something like "author" and is the custom field value the name of the author?)
Have you already written the code for this?

"Are the short story titles equal the post titles?"

"Is the custom field name something like "author" and is the custom field value the name of the author?"
Yes. Field name: "Author"; Field value: "actual-name-of-author".

"Have you already written the code for this?"
No. Way out of my league, especially security-wise. Though, I would eventually try and send you some patches.

Maybe I should have provided how the things actually work for me right now. It's eet-live dot com, left sidebar column, first three sections.

Thanks for a great Widget.

Is there any way to get a second custom field to appear in the list? Like a list of states as the first and a list of cities as the seonc and then when you click on the cities all the listings for the cities are displayed?

Thanks for any help you can give!!!

nr. 8 -- Betreff / subject: Re: Secondary Custom Field

Hello Steve,

i'm thinking the only way to achieve this is to create a custom field (name) for every state and then assign the cities as custom field values to a custom field (name). After that you can create for every state a sidebar widget.
But to have these lists in one widget is not possible with the current version (v0.9.1).

do you think that's possible to do something like this? any idea on what should I change?
thank you!

nr. 10 -- Betreff / subject: Re: changing links

hello ale,

what you want to do is not possible by changing the settings of this plugin. Of course, you allolwed to adopt the plugins source code and change it if you want to. I think it might be a good idea to let the plugin search for a post title which is similar to the custom field value (e.g. name of a guest) when WP passes the action hook "save_post" or "publish_post" and to let it write the custom field values and post IDs into an array in the database table "wp_options". If you do it that way it needs only one or two database queries during the loading of the blog page and with post IDs you are always able to get the right permalink to the posts.

I like the idea of letting the user determine the link of a custom field value. Maybe i will add such a functionality.

But if you need this fast then I think it is probably easier to find a plugin which has already this functionality or if you want to make simply a list of names and link each name to one post or page then you can achieve this by using the text plugin of WP, too. To use the text plugin has no automations but it has a relative good performance during the loading process of the blog page.

I am trying to use your pluging custom field list. I want to sort it based on a particular field but it is not working properly.

Let me explain in detail.

I have monthly newspaper site. Where I have two custom fields year and month.

So it would start from year 1 month 1 and then month would increase upto 12 and then year would be 2. I want that latest edition of newspaper should come first. How to acheive that?

I have tried by defining a third field year-month where the values I am putting are 1_1 , 1_2 etc but it is not sorting.

If you can provide a way of reversing the sorting then it would be nice. Like ASC or DESC.

Please suggest. I love this plugin, I have seen many other plugin doing the similar thing but this seem to be BEST.

Help please.

nr. 15 -- Betreff / subject: WordPress Custom Field List Widget

I have been playing around with custom fields a bit and couldn't find a way to display them. Your custom field list widget manager is perfect.

I downloaded 9.4 and it didn't work. I am using ie 8. I found 9.5 RC on your site and it worked perfectly.

I have one suggestion for a future enhancement. I would like to display the first letter of my custom fields as the first element. The second element would be the custom field itself. This feature would then collapse the entries under each letter. It would also be nice to show the number of posts for each letter of the alphabet.

This one might take a huge amount of work. My workaround is to create another custom field "Letter" and input the appropriate letter for each post.

Thanks again for a great widget.

yes, v0.9.4 does not work with all the IE versions. The bug which causes the problem is solved in the v0.9.5 which I am going to release at the next weekend.

I think the feature of showing the number of posts for each (main) list element will be in the next version (which will be released before christmas). About the other feature with the first letter: I have to think a little bit longer and I am not sure about that.

and see this:

Hi Casemon,

Thank you for your report, too. I'm still not 100% sure why the plugin is not working in your case. But I have looked into the db queries and I have found some hard coded db table names and have changed them with variables.

That might solve your problem if your are not using the default db table prefix "wp_".

This is almost exactly the plugin I was looking for.

I'm not particularly good at php - I can read and modify code a bit but I'm not real fluent so I haven't figured out the php enough to make this change on my own.

Do you know of an easy way to do this?

Is there a "plugin" to enable widgets on a specific page that you know works with your widget?

Or is there a block of code that I could cut and paste into the appropriate custom page template?

von / written by Buddy - 17.12.2009 - 03:19:50

nr. 24 -- Betreff / subject: Re: Widget on Pages

Hi Buddy,

one relative simple way is to create a special page template. Usually there is a page.php in your theme's folder. You can copy that file and remove some of the lines between get_header() and get_sidebar(). These lines are in most cases there to display the blog posts.
Change the name of the template.

Further you have to register a new sidebar (and give the other one a name). For this pupose you have to look into the functions.php of your them. This file should contain function call for register_sidebar() if your theme supports widgets. There your can add new sidebar. You can define the HTML tags which should surround the widget content and these can be different from the other sidebar(s) like DIV instead of LI. With these different HTML tags and maybe some special CSS you can display the widget content over the complete width of the page. Further give names to the sidebars if you have more than one. How that is done is described in the WP Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_sidebar .

If you have a page with the new template and the new sidebar registered then there should be the possibility to add the widget only to this special sidebar.

If you tell which theme you are using then i can help you a little bit, too.

nr. 25 -- Betreff / subject: Cool simple list inflate / deflate

Is the list inflater / deflater jquery available separately? Haven't hacked into the php to try to pull it out (for consistency on the site), so thought to ask first!

von / written by Casemon - 18.12.2009 - 09:16:07

nr. 26 -- Betreff / subject: Re: Cool simple list inflate / deflate

All deflater/inflater related JavaScript code is in the widget_custom_field_list_js.php file with two little exceptions. The de/inflater characters and the effect speed names will be arranged in the header of the pages with help of two little JavaScript functions which are in the main plugin file (widget_custom_field_list.php lines 1312 - 1328). This is an easy and good way to get and hold the settings ready for the de-/inflation actions.

Further the list elements have all a class name which consists of 3 parts: {the class name}_{widget number}_{list part number} e.g. customfieldlistelements_7_0. The function which switches between the list parts gets the widget number, the list part number and much list parts there are. To achieve this effects this way was easier for me then to do it with DOM manipulation commands like parent, sibling or so...
But the other hide and show effects are realised via these jQuery event listener kind of things jQuery(document).ready(function(){} OR jQuery(window).load(function(){}

nr. 27 -- Betreff / subject: output in tranches?

Hi! Now one list of custom fields is very very long.
I placed in a widget area above the footer. It is showing a long list of booktitles.
As this widget area can have 3 columns, I would like to break the list in trunches:

so that one third of the list is shown in any of the columns

to acchieve that I need the possibility not only to show "n" items, let's say a portion of 25 plus navigation to the next entries,
I would need the option:

Show entry #1 to #50
show entry #51 to #100

by this I could spread the list in the footer region and from time to time I would have to organize them again (when the last part gets too long proportionally) that would be no problem for me

Great Widget - thanks for writing it. I do have a couple of issues however.

I have a blank Header, yet on the page where the widget is displayed, it always displays "Custom Field List". I would much prefer that it displays nothing with a blank header - not even a blank line.

Second, the Widget appears to be displaying the custom fields from pages that are still drafts or for Review. It is also displaying those that are in the Trash. Seems like it should only display published posts and pages.

I am trying to figure out if your widget will solve my problem. I appreciate all the work you have done to provide it. I looked a Larry Wilson's site and see how useful it is for him.

I have a blog about vineyards in New England region of US. There are 6 states and about 81 vineyards scattered through them. www.growingvine.net

Everytime I write about a particular vineyard I usually provide their contact info. Name, address, phone and website. So, I copy and paste over and over. If I had a way to reuse a snippet of code like a database that would be so useful. I also have lists of the vineyards, sorted by state, or searchable.

I'm a graphic designer in over my head but I love this project. I hope to help the vineyards who are mainly small, family run, and not making a lot of money. They preserve the land and that is important to me.

If you can shed any light on this, I would appreciate it.

there is probably more than one way but I guess the easiest way is to create a new page template which has a wide sidebar instead of the usual content section. When you have registered this sidebar via the function.php of theme then you can add the any widget to this widgetized content column.
I have made an example for the Kubrick theme. you can download this example in the download section (of the English part of this page). The readme.txt in the .zip file has some more explanations and links for further reading.

Hi Tim - Greetings from Denmark
Excellent plugin - thanks a lot for sharing with the world!

This shows a plus or minus after the field depending if the list is collapsed or expanded. I'd very much like to replace the + and - with text. I'm no php expert, but if you can tell me which of the php file(s) I need to edit (and maybe line numbers too?) I'm comfortable replacing +/- with text there.

Hi Peter, it is already possible to change these expand/collapse characters. The plugin has a settings page (Site Admin / Settings / Custom Field List Widgets) where it is possible to choose between different pre-defined variations. One of them is e.g Show/Hide.
If you like to have these phrases in Danish then the best way to accomplish that is to create a language file. This way you could define two complete different alternative words instead of the Danish equivalents for Show/Hide without changing the source code. I'm using the poEdit editor to create the German language files for the plugin and if you like to do it this way I could send you some prepared language files.

But if you would give you some hints what the alternative words should be then I would insert them myself and they would be part of all following plugin versions.

There is probably a way. One way is via CSS. The whole widget has the class .customfieldlist and if you know which element has this bullet then you can switch it off.

If it is a bullet of a list element then would be something like that
.customfieldlist ul {
list-style-type: none;
.customfieldlist li {
list-style-type: none;

But I could tell you a more specific way if you could tell the name of your theme or the address of the blog.

nr. 53 -- Betreff / subject: Plugin auf separater Seite

Hallo Jan,

eine ziemlich simple Lösung ist es, ein Seiten-Template anzulegen, welches quasi nur aus einer großen Fläche für Widgets - also einer sehr breiten Seitenleite - besteht. Dazu kann man beispielsweise die Datei page.php des Themes kopieren, umbenennen und entsprechend ändern.
Diese spezielle Seitenleiste muss einen eindeutigen Namen erhalten. Darüber hinaus muss diese Seitenleiste auch, in der zum Theme gehörenden Datei functions.php, als Seitenleiste registriert werden.

Im englischsprachigen Downloadbereich dieser Seite habe ich zwei Beispiel Seiten-Templates und eine entsprechend angepasste functions.php Datei zum Download bereitgestellt. Diese Beispiel ist mit den Dateien des mittlerweile alten Default (Kubrick) Themes gemacht.

Man könnte sicherlich auch die Funktion, die das Widget im Frontend darstellt direkt aufrufen. allerdings müßte man die Seiteleisten HTML Elemente manuell übergeben. Auf jeden Fall müsste man auch etwas im Code des Templates ändern. Ich denke aber, dass der erst genannte Methode, die eleganteste ist.

Falls du weitere Fragen hast, werde ich gern versuchen sie zu beantworten.

Viele Grüße

Hallo, ich setze das Widget auf www.avantart.com/lesebuch intensiv ein und nun stelle ich fest, daß es mit der aktuellen Version WP 3.0.1 nicht funktioniert.

Die Listen werden angezeigt, Links werden gebildet, aber die Links werden nicht geladen, es wird immer nur die aktuelle Seite neu geladen. Das ist sehr ärgerlich

bitte prüft das nach!
Gruss, Connie

Ich hoffe, ich konnte das Problem in 1.1.7 (und 1.2 beta 3) reparieren.
Falls das Problem weiterhin besteht, wäre es evtl. hilfreich, wenn Sie mir miteilen könnten, ob Sie ein oder mehrere Namen von Benutzerdefinierten Feldern pro Widget verwenden.

nr. 57 -- Betreff / subject: Showing linkable fields rather than post titles in the drop-down

Great plugin.

I would like to be able to show the linkable fields themselves in the drop down, rather than post titles.

So I have a custom field "author" and I would like the reader to have a drop-down to select the author's name, which would then show the search results of that author (a subset of all the posts). Ideally it would also have the option to "show all"

Also, is there a way to somehow shorten the dropdown when you have many custom fields?

Alternatively, using the collapsable list control (with the + -) instead would be fine, as long as the clickable part is the custom field name, rather than the post title.

Does this make sense? Easy for me to add to the plugin?

That is already possible with the plugin as it is. Please try the list type "a list with manually linked values". Using that list type allows you to create lists which contain the custom field values only one time per list and you have possibility (via the "Set the links" button) to set a custom link e.g. to a search result page for each custom field value.

There is no way to shorten a dropdown list. But you can use of course the "simple list" which allows you to control the length of the list.

Hi Martin,

if you are not logged in, the list should contain only posts with post_status = "publish".
But it is true that the list will contain posts independently of their status if you or other users are logged in. Is this a problem in your case?
Or does the list show also posts which are not published while you are logged out?

nr. 66 -- Betreff / subject: Grouped date fields?

I'm using the Custom Field List Widget to list custom fields for a publication name and publication date (in the format YYYY/MM/DD), but would like to format differently to group publication dates by year (currently it is a very long list with every date), along with the number of posts for that year.

Something like this:
Publication-A (22)
Publication-B (4)

and for dates:
1923 (12)
1922 (7)
1921 (16)

Here is the site to see what I mean:

Is this possible with your plugin?

von / written by Bob - 11.06.2011 - 20:20:18

nr. 67 -- Betreff / subject: Re: Grouped date fields?

Hi Bob,

that is basically possible to do that with the plugin. You need to add the year as an separate custom field value to each post. If you have done that you can use this custom field name e.g. "pubyear" to create a list. (And if you are going to add such custom field, maybe think about adding a field for the month.)
It is also possible to display the number of sub list elements (posts per year).

Grouping the posts by their titles is maybe easier. There is the option "group the values by the first character". This option was meant to be for such a purpose.

There are no values in connection to the custom field name "ispd" in the data base.

nr. 69 -- Betreff / subject: Re: custom field list widget - links

This message you could see in the sidebar menus that there are no published posts which have a custom field with the name "ispd".

If the post with this custom field was and is still a draft or has any other status as published than it will not be part of the list in the sidebar. (An other status may be "private" or Pending Review)
The other possible but maybe not very likely explanation is that there was no post at all with this custom field (name).

nr. 70 -- Betreff / subject: Can we have an option for non hierarchal lists?

I like this widget, it performs exactly as I would like except for one issue, if there are multiple custom fields with the same value, then they are stored underneath (open and closeable sub-list), but I would rather that if I click on such an entry it goes to a page of that shows all pages with that custom value.

An example is an artist field, if I click on an entry that I have only one song of that artist, then it goes to that entry, but if I have multiple entries, then the pages are listed underneath that.

I know in writing this now, that t is really beyond the scope of the widget, because there is no page that lists all the songs of the individual artists.

Do you know of a simple way I could achieve this?

von / written by Dave - 25.08.2011 - 19:19:09

nr. 71 -- Betreff / subject: Can we have an option for non hierarchal lists?

Hi Dave,
I would say that it is possible to create such a list which has the names of the artists as main list elements and the songs as sub elements.
Make a custom field with the name e.g. "artist" and one or more with the name "song" per post. The value of the "artist" field is the name of the artist and the value of the "song" field is the name of the song. In this scenario you may have more than one "song" field per post. But you can have only one "artist" field per post.
In the widget settings: insert "artist" as the first value in the list of custom field names and "song" as the second one. That is it basically.
If you have a different number of "song" fields per post then there will be a notice in the widget settings. But this notice is more important in a different scenario and you may ignore it.
The only thing which is probably not adjustable is that if you are using such a list which combines two custom fields then each list element of the list in the sidebar has a sub element.

Do i have understood your scenario correctly?

I really love your plugin! I experimented a little issue using the tool. My website is about pipe tobaccos, I structured it with a custom post type and the usual posts. In the custom post type, I use the custom fields Brand (c_brand) and Cut (c_cut) and in the custom post type and the fields Brand (m_brand) and Cut (m_cut) in the usual posts.

Now, the plugin works fine, listing m_brand/c_cut (picked from the normal posts), but when I reopen an already saved custom post entry, the custom post appairs in the widget without any query value, it just list the custom post tille. My website: http://catasdetabacos.com

Vielen dank! The plugin is really useful - with so many options it must have been really difficult to create and almost more so to maintain! It may even be unique in what it can do ... not absolutely sure as I stopped looking when I found this ;-)

One suggestion (meant constructively and not as a complaint or bug!) - Would be great to have a unique title visible in the admin widget screen. Because it can be multiple appearance, it would be useful to be able to see straight away which is which. The title wouldn't have to be 'hideable' necessarily ... there is at least one plugin which adds the functionality to show titles on admin pages, but not on the actual site.

It would be good to have the first level expandable too - so the actual posts weren't shown until you click on a field name. Might already be there ... I haven't played with all the options yet to be sure what they do. I'm off to do that now :-))

Many thanks again.

Played .. it's great, many thanks.

Constructive feedback: When I try to go to the "Custom Field List Widget - settings" from the widget, it tells me I'm not authorised. (I'm an admin, with full - as far as I know - rights.) When I try to go to the same place from the WPdashboard, I can do so without difficulty. Not really a problem ... just letting you know.

Is there a way to NOT show posts where the custom field value is "null"? Have played around a bit, but nothing seems obvious.

Best regards

I'm an author, and completely clueless about coding. However, your widget looks like it will work perfect for me to list the books I'm reading on the side column of my site.

I have no clue at this point how to get content from, say, a post, to the hoped-for list of books on the side bar.
