<?php if ( get_post_meta($post->ID, 'your_metabox_id', true) ) : ?>

        <?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'your_metabox_id', true) ?>

<?php endif; ?>

The trick is to use get_post_meta hook

post you box creation code here – Daniel Sachs Jun 13 '11 at 12:22
are you using it inside the loop? – Daniel Sachs Jun 13 '11 at 12:24
no, I am not using it inside the loop, its after <?php content()?> – nickfrancis.me Jun 13 '11 at 12:36
try: <?php echo get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'your_metabox_id', true); ?> You need to change the "your_metabox_id" to your metabox id name. you you want to use it outside the loop use <?php global $wp_query; $postid = $wp_query->post->ID; echo get_post_meta($postid, 'your_metabox_id', true); ?> – Daniel Sachs Jun 13 '11 at 12:46
