    Hi johnw1965

    add_meta_box() is a function that is within the core of WordPress and Organize Series uses it to add the series meta box to the edit-post screen.

    At this point, I suspect this is either something going on with the theme or there is another plugin that is active that is causing a conflict.

    I know the Builder theme is a fairly complex theme that does some cool stuff for users and WordPress. Have you contacted ithemes about the issue?

    hmmm... I've looked closer. It seems like WordPress 3.0 introduced a better way to use the add_meta_box() function. I'll make some changes, hopefully sometime today and release what will hopefully be a *fix for your issue.

    john,
    I just released os2.4 that implements add_meta_box() using the recommended api WordPress codex suggests. This might fix your issue. If it doesn't, then refer to my previous post above. If it DOES work, please report back here so if any other users experience this they will know to upgrade to the latest version of Organize Series for the fix.
