Adding Custom Fields

I’m struggling with the php side of adding custom fields to a post.

I’m using a child theme of thematic and I can’t find any threads on how to add custom fields, other than adding the key and value in the post itself. I do that and nothing happens. So I guess there is some pretty simple php that needs to go in somewhere.

Any ideas. Thanks,

That’s right, it’s on wordpress, thematic is the template and I’m using a child theme. I can add a custom field to a post but nothing appears in the post. So I think I need to add some php to the functions.php file or something like that
