    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!
