Meta Fields

PeoplePods allows you to extend data included in the Person Object, Content Object, and the Group Object by adding meta fields.

Meta fields behave, for the most part, the same way normal fields behave. You can get() and write() them as if they were "real" fields. However, you must use addMeta() to change values or add new ones.

Meta fields can be added at any time with no prior configuration. You can add different sets of meta fields to each object, or reuse the same fields. However, each object can only have one field of any given name.

If you need to assign values to objects that are different for each user, use flags.

Use meta fields to add profile questions to your $person objects, or to collect extra information about $content objects.
