I am using the following code in functions.php for adding a custom meta box.

The custom post type is themes. I want to add more post types, how can I?

Do you want to add more Custom Post Types or add the same metabox to other post types? – brasofilo Dec 11 '12 at 2:43

Whenever in doubt about a WordPress function, consult the Codex.

There, you'll see that you need to add one meta box to each post type.

add_action( 'add_meta_boxes', 'myplugin_add_custom_box' );

function myplugin_add_custom_box() {
        __( 'My Post Section Title', 'myplugin_textdomain' ),
        __( 'My Post Section Title', 'myplugin_textdomain' ),
