Meta Box

Description

Meta Box plugin is a powerful, professional toolkit for developers to create and handle everything related to custom meta boxes and custom fields for WordPress.

The plugin provides a wide range of field types and a lot of options to for each field type, which gives you unlimited possibility to control and customize the custom fields.

With the extensions, you can easily build meta boxes not only for custom post types (default), but also for settings page, user meta, term meta. You can also display the fields the way you want with columns, tabs or groups.

Reviews

Best MetaBox Plugin on the Market!

I have tried many frameworks for building meta boxes. This one is the best metabox plugin so far. The developer is pretty active, I have contributed several times. He is very active. This plugin stays out of your way and has a pretty neat code base.

Be careful with new releases!

The plugin is an excellent software! By the way, we think it is very non-professional to abandon a function in the latest release! Neither without widely informing all the users.
It caused us many problems because we discovered it not working on a live website!

To be more precise, I am talking about the rwmb_meta() function which was removedd in 4.10. If you continue like this with many updates and no backward compatibility the Plugin will lose usefulness..

In this page is told in a footage little note: https://metabox.io/docs/registering-meta-boxes/

Instead every major change needs to be notified and specified in the Changelog.

Changelog

4.11

  • Code architecture update:
    • Add object_id property to the meta box object. Used to connect the meta box to the post object. Not heavily used yet.
    • Add RWMB_Meta_Box_Registry and RWMB_Field_Registry to store all registered meta boxes and fields. Used to future access these objects. Use internally only. 3rd-party code should not use it as it’s still experimental and can change in the future.
    • Deprecated RWMB_Core::get_meta_boxes() due to the meta box registry above. This function was made for internally use only. 3rd-party code should not rely on it.
