Support » Fixing WordPress » My custom_post_type fields are showing up in custom fields

  • Hi,

    I’ve created a ‘custom post type’ and when you go to add/edit a post or page, my ‘custom post type’ fields appear in the custom fields section. I don’t want them there, is there a way to not display them in the custom fields section?

    Here are the arguments for my custom_post_type:

    $args = array(
    	'label'                => 'products',
    	'labels'               => array(),
    	'description'          => 'Displays Products',
    	'public'               => true,
    	'publicy_queryable'    => true,
    	'exclude_from_search'  => false,
    	'show_ui'              => '',
    	'capability_type'      => 'post',
    	'capabilities'         => array(),
    	'hierarchial'          => '',
    	'supports'             => array(),
    	'register_meta_box_cb' => '',
    	'taxonomies'           => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ),
    	'menu_position'        => 4,
    	'menu_icon'            => '',
    	'permalink_epmask'     => '',
    	'rewrite'              => '',
    	'query_var'            => '',
    	'can_export'           => true,
    	'show_in_nav_menus'    => true,
    	'_builtin'             => '',
    	'_edit_link'           => ''
    $labels = array(
    	'name'               => 'Products',
    	'singular_name'      => 'Product',
    	'add_new'            => 'Add New',
    	'add_new_item'       => 'Add New Product',
    	'edit_item'          => 'Edit Product',
    	'new_item'           => 'New Product',
    	'view_item'          => 'View Product',
    	'search_items'       => 'Search Products',
    	'not_found'          => 'Products not found',
    	'not_found_in_trash' => 'Products not found in trash',
    	'parent_item_colon'  => ''
    // hook
    register_post_type('product', $args);

  • Any luck with this?

    I’m having a similar problem. Any luck fixing this?

    I added a meta_box to my custom post type and name showing up in the rest of the post and pages in the custom fields.

    Any feed back would be helpful.

    Hey James,

    Actually, I’ve put all my custom_post_type fields in an array and just called it (for the sake of the example above) products_data. I’ve re-wrote my code to unserialize and extract the array. It still shows up in the Custom Fields area though, but at least its just one field and not a whole bunch.


    @easilyamused, how did you add the meta box?

    I decided to forego the register_meta_box_cb in registering my CPTs and instead just made a function for my meta boxes

    add_meta_box('ve_social_links', 'Social Links', 've_social_links', 've_members', 'side', 'default');

    in there adds a meta box to only ve_members CPT
    if you are interested in the full code

    It adds a set of meta boxes to ve_members CPT, then another box to standard posts
