Custom Fields Add-on
This add-on provides a number of new shortcodes allowing you to include data from custom fields for posts, pages, and custom post types, as well as custom fields in a user’s profile in both the subject and message body of your notifications. It also allows you to set one or multiple custom fields that will ‘trigger’ the notification. It works great with ACF’s front-end forms (acf_form) too.
Supported Custom Field Plugins
The custom field plugins that are supported for posts, pages, or custom post types are:
- Advanced Custom Fields Pro
- Advanced Custom Fields (Free)
- Meta Box
- Toolset Types (partial support)
- WordPress’s own, default custom fields
User Profile Custom Fields
You can also include data from custom fields in a user’s profile (user meta data), providing that it’s created using WordPress’s standard user_meta_fields, either via ACF, WordPress, custom code, or another plugin. These can be used in any notification that allows you to use the user shortcodes that BNFW provides.
The custom field types that you can currently use in your post, page, and custom post type notifications are:
- WYSIWYG Editor
- Radio Button
- True / False
- Page Link
- Color Picker
You’d like to update Editors when a custom textarea field called ‘Post Notes’ is updated, and you’d like to include the contents of that custom field along with the post title, content, and any information stored in other custom fields in that post in a notification. With this add-on, that’s easy.
Please Note: Currently, data is retrieved and displayed in the form that it is stored in the database. E.g. Dates are displayed in YYYYMMDD format, files are outputted as IDs and not full URLs, etc.
For more information, I recommend that you look through the full documentation to ensure that this add-on will meet your requirements, prior to purchasing.

I had been using the free version of BNFW for years, and decided I needed to step up my game. If you use custom fields, you need this add-on. It does its job flawlessly and is well documented (the list of shortcodes is very handy). I'm a happy customer.
This add-on works as promised and is an absolute must for sites that utilize custom fields. I work with Toolset Types to customize my clients’ websites and needed to ensure that custom field data for pages, posts and custom post types could be incorporated into email notifications. The plugin and all of its add-ons are well documented and plugin support is excellent!
