How to track custom meta data / custom fields?

Home » Support » Docs » How to track custom meta data / custom fields?

Full Picture lets you track custom data associated with posts, pages and custom post types that is added by other plugins and/or frameworks like Advanced Custom Fields or MetaBox.

What data can be tracked

Full Picture lets you track unserialized, non-array data like strings, numbers and booleans (true false).

The data also needs to be accessible directly via get_post_meta() this function – without the need to further process it or do any calculations to reach the final value. In other words, if the data is a string, number or a boolean then Full Picture can track it.

How to track custom post data

In order to track the data you first need to register it.

  1. Go to the Full Picture > “General settings” page
  2. Find a field titled “Allow tracking custom meta data added by other plugins”
  3. Enter ids of the data you want to track and choose their type

When you register the data:

  1. Visit settings pages of the tracking tools you enabled in Full Picture
  2. Find settings titled “Track custom meta data”
  3. and enter the meta ids that you previously registered
