    It looks like my favorite plugin is missing - Verve Meta Boxes. Does anyone know what the story is on this? Is this plugin gone for good? It was extremely well-liked and popular, so I'm not sure why it was taken down. Any info would be great. Thanks.

    Yep it's gone, possibly due to timthumb concerns

    I've had many sites hacked using timthumb vulnerabilities after using Verve Meta Boxes. I just updated the bundled version of timthumb to the latest and it's been absolutely fine ever since.

    Sad to see it go, it's a really good plugin. Luckily I've kept the latest version!

    Erik Petersen of TRILOS reached out to me today about Verve Meta Boxes. As the developer of the plugin I must apologize for not keeping it updated. I have been working at a startup which takes all my time. Here are some things I can tell you:

    The timthumb security vulnerability was removed in version 1.2.9.

    I currently run Verve Meta Boxes on a busy version 3.3.1 wordpress site - ymmv however.

    I plan on putting the plugin on Github this week. Will post here the location of the archive when I do. If you have less than version 1.2.9, please email me (you can find my email at the bottom of my site: avenueverve.com), and I will send you a zip archive.

    You could use ACF as a pretty good alternative to Verve
