Gutenberg is coming soon to your WordPress, whether you like it or not. Debate and drama aside, it’s time that we start looking for practical ways to adapt current WordPress sites to the many imminent changes brought to us by G7G. One of these changes involves Custom Fields. Currently, and hopefully this will change in a future update, Custom Fields are not displayed on Gutenberg-enabled screens. Which is kind of a bummer, considering the millions of websites, plugins, and themes that make good use of them.
So to help out with this, I’ve written a simple plugin that brings back the Custom Fields meta box, so that your custom fields are displayed on WP Posts, Pages, and any capable Custom Post Type.
What it does
Currently, Custom Fields for Gutenberg does one thing and does it well: displays the Custom Fields meta box on any Gutenberg-enabled screen. Just activate and done. The plugin also includes some default options to disable custom-field display on any particular post type(s). And you can specify any custom fields that should not be included in the Custom Fields meta box. Plus some other options to fine-tune how the custom fields are displayed.
