WordPress has the ability to allow post authors to assign custom fields to a post. This arbitrary extra information is known as meta-data. This meta-data can include bits of information such as:
- Mood: Happy
- Currently Reading: Cinderella
- Listening To: Rock Around the Clock
- Weather: Hot and humid
With some extra coding, it is possible to achieve more complex actions, such as using the metadata to store an expiration date for a post. You can find more information on custom fields and the coding involved at the WordPress support site.
