Creating additional fields in a WordPress Write/Edit page
Bloggers using WordPress extensively to publish their posts can add more fields as per their requirements easily. Any number of fields can be incorporated in a particular post or web page by using More Fields plugin which normally appears on the far right hand side of the post.
A column is available to the right of the editor in all WordPress pages or posts which displays objects like Preview posts, Publish post, schedule future posts, set private post and many more. Any new fields can be added in this column.
WordPress provides a utility called More Fields WordPress plug-in to add new fields to a post as per the user’s requirements. One can add any number of additional fields on Write/ Edit page by creating number of boxes to hold corresponding additional fields for a post.
Every Write/ Edit page comes with either a large left column or narrow right column. Many elements are available on an editable page or post, and BOX is one such element that is used to add new fields.
WordPress plug-in adds any number fields by creating number of boxes either on right side or left side of the page and with any field type. Different WordPress Fields plug-in can be downloaded from WordPress Plugin Directory.
