I like it!!

I like it. I was looking for the possibility of adding notes to my posts, in html format. One suggestion: add an icon to the WP front-end posts list.

Simple solution; great idea

I was using HTML comments inside of my post content for storing notes in my posts. This is a much better solution. It would also work great with an outline side-by-side with your content. Simple solution; great idea.

Update of CMB2 to the latest version to fix issue with PHP 7.2

CMB2 is now maintained/updated using Composer


Quick update to fix problems when using < PHP 5.5 that was causing “Fatal error: Can’t use method return value in write context in …wp-noteup/class/class-wp-noteup-post-type-settings.php”
Tested down to PHP 5.2.4


The update adds the ability to use WP NoteUp on other custom post types! Just checkout Settings > General to enable other post types. Also, we’ve simplified the Metabox, it now says “Notes” instead of “NoteUp.” And, I’ve made it safer by validating and filters used under the hood by other developers.


Major fixes to work with WordPress 4.7.2! Notes were lost when the postbox was moved around from the side to the “normal” area and back in the Post edit screen. So, for now, we’ve disabled the NoteUp metabox from being in side, and do not allow it to be dragged around to different areas. Don’t worry, we don’t break any of your other post-boxes!


Yet another small change in hopes that activation through WordPress.org is again possible.


Another small tweak fixing the issue people are having activating the plugin.


Small tweak that keeps other Add Media buttons from showing up in the NoteUp box.


This major update, dubbed Cube, was entirely focused on updating the experience of note taking to include formatting and media.

Special thanks to the CMB2 crew @webdevstudios.


Initial release that allows simple text notes on Posts and Pages.
