Add Custom Post Meta Data To Post List Table

Admin Area

One of the best thing about WordPress is that you can customise almost anything. In the admin area you can see a list of all the posts you have added in WordPress. Within this table it shows the basic information for each of the posts, the title, the author, the category, tags, comments and the date the post was published.

WordPress has a number of different filters and actions that allow you to edit the output of the column so you can add your own data to this list. For example if you have custom post meta data which is useful information you want to display on the list of posts you can add new custom columns to the list.

In this article you will learn how to add new columns to the post list, how you can add data to the column and how you can make this column sortable.
