So with the old version of simple-tags I was able to easily tag all of my articles (a custom post type). I still haven't been able to figure out how to get the meta boxes for those two options to show. The "Tags (Simple Tags)" box where we can manually type in the tags and below it is a box titled "Simple Tags-Settings" which is empty. The settings box is actually empty when I edit posts or anything else but that's a separate issue. I can still mass edit terms for articles but having one person do them all at once sort of defeats the purpose since we have many different people posting at different times.
Anyone have any luck getting these metaboxes to work with custom post types? The code for this plugin is pretty poorly organized so I didn't want to blindly mess with it too much but at this point I'll take any suggestions.
