Support » Plugins » Verve Meta Boxes – Gone?

  • Josh


    It looks like my favorite plugin is missing – Verve Meta Boxes. Does anyone know what the story is on this? Is this plugin gone for good? It was extremely well-liked and popular, so I’m not sure why it was taken down. Any info would be great. Thanks.

  • Yep it’s gone, possibly due to timthumb concerns

    I’ve had many sites hacked using timthumb vulnerabilities after using Verve Meta Boxes. I just updated the bundled version of timthumb to the latest and it’s been absolutely fine ever since.

    Sad to see it go, it’s a really good plugin. Luckily I’ve kept the latest version!

    Erik Petersen of TRILOS reached out to me today about Verve Meta Boxes. As the developer of the plugin I must apologize for not keeping it updated. I have been working at a startup which takes all my time. Here are some things I can tell you:

    The timthumb security vulnerability was removed in version 1.2.9.

    I currently run Verve Meta Boxes on a busy version 3.3.1 wordpress site – ymmv however.

    I plan on putting the plugin on Github this week. Will post here the location of the archive when I do. If you have less than version 1.2.9, please email me (you can find my email at the bottom of my site:, and I will send you a zip archive.

    As promised, here’s the link to the Git repo:

    You could use ACF as a pretty good alternative to Verve
