Using Custom Fields in Statuses

Custom fields can be added to any status update in WordPress to Buffer Pro, using the format {custom_field_NAME}, where NAME is the Post Meta key you want to get the value of for the Post that’s being sent to Buffer.

It’s hard to advise precisely what the precise tag will be, however we’ve documented some more common WordPress Plugin Custom Field keys below.

Advanced Custom Fields

You can access the value of an Advanced Custom Field by using its Field Name in your status messages.

Taking the below example, where we have a Field Name of test:WordPress to Buffer Pro: Custom Fields: ACF Field Configuration

You would use {custom_field_test} in your status messages, where the bold text denotes the Field Name in ACF above.
WordPress to Buffer Pro: Custom Fields: ACF Status Example

In your status message, custom_field_ must prefix the Field Name
Make sure you are using the Field Name.  The Field Label and programmatic Field Key will not work.

Custom Fields

You can access the value of a Meta or Custom Field by using its Meta Key in your status messages.

Taking the below example, where we have a Meta Key in a Post defined as test:WordPress to Buffer Pro: Custom Fields: Meta Configuration

You would use {custom_field_test} in your status messages, where the bold text denotes the Meta Key in the Custom Fields section of your Post above.
