  1. Hi,

    I have a number of pages for staff members in my WP installation and each of these has additional custom fields for telephone, email, fax, a class room number.

    I need to create a directory listing page which will pull all the custom fields from these pages depending on the department they are in.

    The custom fields on my Staff Details page is working superbly but now I need a way to extract all that information to create a list for all the departments please.

    Many thanks!

  2. this is more of a general WP question. you're going to need to make a loop using query_posts (or get_posts)

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_posts

    and all the custom fields are just post meta
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_post_meta

    that you'll be able to access in your custom loop
