    Hello

    A while ago Steve mentioned (in the context of having repeatable fields) that it should be possible to dynamically generate the fields array in slt_cf_register_box() from a for loop – to create a given number of meta boxes without having to write them all out. I’ve been trying to do this but failing! Any chance you could point me in the right direction?

    So, for example, if I wanted to generate 15 sets of title/text in a box:

    $fields = array();
    for ($i=0; $i <= 15; $i++) {
    $fields[] =
          array(
                  'name'          => 'title_'.$i,
                  'label'         => 'Title '.$i,
                  'type'          => 'text',
                  'scope'         => array( 'page', 'project', 'except_posts' => array( 4, 45 ) ),
                  'capabilities'  => array( 'edit_posts' )
              ),
          array(
                  'name'          => 'text_'.$i,
                  'label'         => 'Text '.$i,
                  'type'          => 'textarea',
                  'autop'         => 'true',
                  'scope'         => array( 'page', 'project', 'except_posts' => array( 4, 45 ) ),
                  'capabilities'  => array( 'edit_posts' )
              )
    };
    
    slt_cf_register_box( array(
        'type'      => 'post',
        'title'     => 'Process Map',
        'id'        => 'process_map',
        'context'   => 'normal',
        'priority'  => 'high',
        'fields'    => $fields
    ));

    Thanks!
