The JSM's Show Post Metadata plugin displays post (ie. posts, pages, and custom post types) meta keys (aka custom field names) and their unserialized values in a metabox at the bottom of post editing pages.

The current user must have the WordPress manage_options capability (allows access to administration options) to view the Post Metadata metabox, and the manage_options capability to delete individual meta keys.

The default manage_options capability can be modified using the 'jsmspm_show_metabox_capability' and 'jsmspm_delete_meta_capability' filters (see filters.txt in the plugin folder).

There are no plugin settings - simply install and activate the plugin.

    I’ve started recently to use this plugin to discover post meta values, I must say it’s cleaner than other plugins I’ve used before.

    Thanks for the latest update release 2.0.0, the ability to have post meta updated without having to load the page is pretty awesome.

    I use the plugin almost everyday. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see what’s in post meta.

    Keep it up!
