Support » Plugins » Saving meta box position for custom post types

  • Hi, I’m working on a plugin that create meta boxes on post editing pages. One thing I’ve noticed is that, for the built-in post types like ‘post’ or ‘page’, positions of the boxes are remembered when moved.

    However, for custom post types, they don’t get to save their positions. What should I change for them to save?

  • Hello there,

    i recognized the same problem – even the position of the standard meta boxes cannot be changed permanently. I can drag them but after a page is reloaded they all are back in the standard position.

    I added the custom post types manually and per plugin – in both cases i cannot change the position of the boxes.

    Is there any parameter to make a custom post type saving the position of the boxes?

    Kind regards,


    yea im tempted to go rooting through the admin css files :/

    anyone got any experience in this matter?
