comment Metaboxes not saving data
Final update: the URL field was not saving because of the last if statement in the save_meta function. If the video_url field either doesn't exist, then the first statement will always be triggered. However, if the value already exists, but is blank, the first statement is also triggered and the add_post_meta function (with the unique set to true) will not be updated. The second evaluation will be true if the metakey exists and is blank, and update_post_meta will create a new metakey if it doesn't exist.

Update: the date field wasn't displaying data because it was using the input type date, which apparently conflicts with jQuery's datepicker. Switching to a regular text field and everything works nicely. Still working on the URL field.

comment Metaboxes not saving data
I didn't realize I didn't have Debug turned on for my dev site. When I turned it on, I discovered there was an issue with how I registered a stylesheet. Not sure why this affects saving metabox data, but it did. I fixed that and all but two of my metaboxes are now saving. Video URL and the date still don't work. Thanks for your help Helga, I'll post more as I figure this out.

Yes, I have another meta box on the same page that shows me each meta data's value. I also put a value in the Location field and submitted. The var_dump you recommended and it doesn't show the value I put into the field. Since I found the meta_box plugin, I've been seriously debating switching, but I can't help thinking I'm just one line of code away from having this down.

comment get_avatar not working
Good grief. The simple things... :) I've looked at a bunch of tutorials on using get_avatar and didn't notice the echo statement on any of them. Thanks Eugene!

I did end up finding the answer and it was something built into the theme, I just didn't notice it in the documentation the first time through. As for the original question: this is what I was looking for: single_cat_title() - codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/single_cat_title
