I've made a meta box field which works nice, but now i need to add one more. For the past few hours I've tried to mix every piece of it, to duplicate it, take some parts, google, search, and no luck. Second meta box appears but it wont save. So this is my first meta box. Can anyone help with making additional one. What needs to be added from first one to second/or removed. Some parts do not show well here so cleaner version http://pastebin.com/hYiYj1ZH

  • where is the function to save 'sw_face_box_meta_box' – Howard E May 4 '16 at 10:52
  • Hey @HowardE in this snippet i dont have it. I wanted to make show one clean working one, and get a way to duplicate it. Why i didnt show that. Because I've tried with more than 10 ways, not sure which one to provide, that's why i opted not to..Basically i tried to copy and edit top part, bottom part, both..etc..ma no luck, doesnt save. Can you tell me only which lines i should copy and edit? – Max May 4 '16 at 18:15

You didn't add the save meta action for the facebook meta box.

<?php
/* Fire our meta box setup function on the post editor screen. */

function sw_post_meta_boxes_setup() {

  /* Save post meta on the 'save_post' hook. */
  add_action( 'save_post', 'sw_save_video_box_meta', 10, 2);
  add_action( 'save_post', 'sw_save_face_box_meta', 10, 2);

}

/* Create one or more meta boxes to be displayed on the post editor screen. */

  • Thank you a lot. Now i see that i did go way the correct way, but i missed just one line, that's why it wasnt working. It was this one add_action( 'save_post', 'sw_save_face_box_meta', 10, 2); Once again, thank you! – Max May 5 '16 at 3:23
