enabling tell-a-friend for previous posts creates visible custom key

Please replace the ??? with your data!

  • Your URL: http://???
  • The browser used: ???
  • cforms version: 6.41
  • Your Wordpress version: ???

When using the "T-A-F enable all your previous posts" option, in addition to showing the form, which is great, it also generates a custom key with name "tell-a-friend" and value of "1", which is not so great – since that custom key displays in a post when using the_meta (which shows all custom keys and values).

The work aruond would be to properly / selectively  show the custom field data and not use  the_meta(). Custom fields are often used by plugins to store additional post relevant data so you might run into this again.

Ok, thanks – just wanted to make sure this was expected behavior. It might be helpful to add a note to the help section about this ("Note: enabling T-A-F for all previous posts will generate a custom field for each post" or something to that effect).
