How do I figure out what machine codes are in existing custom event fields?

Hi,

I’m afraid I’m unfamiliar with the meaning of “machine codes” and how they’d apply to a WordPress post custom field. Maybe you can elaborate or share some specifics about what you’re looking to accomplish with using custom fields?

The custom field has a field for the title of the thing and then a field for the machine readable field name, ie: ‘Crazy Name’ and then the corresponding ‘crazy_name’. How do I get those second corresponding field strings so I can do the CSV export thing I need to do from existing custom fields?

I know I am not using wordpress jargon. I’ll eventually get verbose.

If you’re referring to these, then it sounds like you’re looking for the meta_key. So one way to find those is look in the database at the _postmeta table and look at the cells under the meta_key column.

Thanks! I sort of knew that’s where they sort of are, just hoped there was a convenient admin exposure of the values.

If you’re looking for something to show the post_meta for each post, this plugin adds that:
