Post Metaboxes Tabs

Groups mataboxes when editing post/page in administration backend to tabs according to metabox name pattern `Tab/Metabox`.

When you have a lot of metaboxes in the post/page edit screen, you end up scrolling which is confusing. Metaboxes represent a group of fields like Address, or Ingredients, etc. Imagine you are creating a deep CV for a person. Suddently you have Addresses, Contacts, Profile, Education, Skills, Languages, etc. But as you can see

Addresses

, Contacts, Profile can be categorized as `Personal Data.

This plugin lets you group metaboxes by anything, just name each metabox as Tab / Box name. So the

Addresses

metabox should be named as Personal Data / Addresses and it will be grouped with Personal Data / Contact under Personal Data tab.

Notes:

  • Both Tab / Box name and Tab/Box name or Tab/ Box name work
  • Built-in metaboxes are ignored (they usually sit in the sidebar and are needed all the time)
  • Although tested on 3.2, it should work since 2.5
  • Javascript enabled is required

Requires: 2.5 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.2.1
