I am creating a custom events page and I want to know how to create a custom meta box to save event dates. I don't want it to be a regular meta box because I will be using this to make a custom search bar so I am guessing I have to save it to MySQL no?

I am lost, as to how I have to go about this. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

If you're in need of Meta Boxes for WordPress, check out the amazing code in github by jaredatch.

This allows you to add all sorts of metaboxes to your WP theme (or plugin). Date Picker, file upload, wysiwyg, text areas, text's really amazing and saves lots of time.
