    Hi,

    I am using custom post types for the first time and have managed to get everything working except when I try and save the meta information.
    I'd appreciate it if someone could have a look at the code below and see where I might be going wrong with this please.

    add_action( 'init', 'sh_spotting' );
    
    function sh_spotting() {
    	$labels = array(
    		'name'		=> __( 'Calendars' ),
    		'singular_name'	=> __( 'Calendar' ),
    		'add_new'	=> _x('Add New Event',''),
    		'add_new_item'	=> __('Add New Event',''),
    		'edit_item'	=> __('Edit Event', ''),
    		'view_item'	=> __('View Event',''),
    		'search_items'	=> __('Search Events',''),
    		'not_found'	=> __('No Such Event',''),
    		'parent_item_colon'	=> '',
    		'menu_name'	=> __('Events',''),
    	);
    	$args = array(
    	    'labels' 	=> $labels,
    	    'public' 	=> true,
    	    'publicly_queryable' => true,
    	    'show_ui' 	=> true,
    	    'show_in_menu' => true,
    	    'query_var' => true,
    	    'rewrite' 	=> true,
    	    'capability_type' => 'post',
    		'has_archive' => true,
    		'exclude_from_search'	=> false,
    		'menu_position'	=> 5,
    	    'hierarchical' => false,
    	    'supports' 	=> array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'page-attributes' )
      );
      register_post_type('spotted', $args);
    }
    
    add_action("admin_init", "admin_init");
    add_action('save_post', 'save_sh_event'); 
    
    function admin_init()
    {
    	add_meta_box("shEvent-meta", "Event Details", "meta_options", "spotted", "side", "low");
    }
    
    function meta_options()
    {
            global $post;
            $custom = get_post_custom($post->ID);
            $match_against = $custom["match_against"][0];
            $match_venue = $custom["match_venue"][0];
            $match_tournament = $custom["match_tournament"][0];
    	?>
        	<div class="sh_events">
        		<label>Playing against:</label><input name="match_against" value="<?php echo $match_against; ?>" />
        		<label>Playing where:</label><input name="match_venue" value="<?php echo $match_venue; ?>" />
        		<label>Tournament:</label><input name="match_tournament" value="<?php echo $match_tournament; ?>" />
        		<p>Please use the <strong>Publish</strong> settings box to set the event date and time</p>
        	</div>
    	<?php
        }  
    
    // I think I might be going wrong here somewhere?
    function save_sh_event(){
        global $post;
        update_post_meta($post->ID, "match_against", $_POST["match_against"]);
    	update_post_meta($post->ID, "match_venue", $_POST["match_venue"]);
    	update_post_meta($post->ID, "match_tournament", $_POST["match_tournament"]);
    }
    
    register_taxonomy("sh-events", array("shark-spotting"), array("hierarchical" => true, "label" => "Event Categories", "singular_label" => "Event", "rewrite" => true));

    Many thanks

    [No bumping, thank you.]
