- Click the ‘Add Processor’ button. If the add-on is properly installed, you will see these two processors: Custom Fields Post Metabox and Save as Post Type.
- Click ‘Use Processor’ on the processor that you want to use.
This will add the processor to your form and give you settings for this processor.

If you choose Custom Fields Post Metabox, read how to use custom fields add-on to create a custom metabox in the post editor.
If you choose Save as Post Type, read how to use custom fields add-on for front-end post creation.
Disabling And Removing The Processor
In the processor settings, you have the options to disable and remove the processor. Disabling the processor will make the processor inactive, you can enable it again later. Removing the processor will delete the processor permanently.
You can find the ‘Disable Processor’ button at the top of the settings, and the ‘Remove Processor’ button at the bottom.
