How to get a Full List of your Post’s Meta Data

If you’re setting up a Meta Reference, but this isn’t showing up in your grid, the following tip can help to make sure the “Original Handle” being used is correct. This is useful for WooCommerce, Events Manager, and other CPT’s.

1. Temporarily add the following code snippet to your theme’s “functions.php” file.

function my_post_meta( $content ) {
    $my_meta = get_post_meta( get_the_ID() );
    $my_meta_data = '<pre>' . print_r( $my_meta, true ) . '</pre>';
    return $content . $my_meta_data;
if( !is_admin() ) {
    add_filter( 'the_content', 'my_post_meta' );
