I am trying to let CRED edit yoast_wpseo_focuskw.

I visited this URL: and I tried to do it this way.

But when you make custom fields with types you always get wpcf before the fieldname. So the Yoast field is not edited, but the field wpcf-yoast_wpseo_focuskw is.

Hi Marijke,

Thank you for contacting our support forum.

What you can do is to create a generic CRED field and give it the same name as your 3rd party custom field.

Please try this and let me know if it helps.


Yesss, it works now!

But not with the generic field you suggested. I never discoverd the button 'Manage on-Toolset Post Fields' in the bottom of my list with forms. Now I read the instruction once more and discoverd it. I would expect this button on the general configuration tab forms and not on bottom of my list of forms.

Thank you
