I created my own custom post, all right up here. I have also added the meta box for custom post. But I've noticed that some plugins automatically add their own METABOX my custom post type.

This can be avoided?

Kind Regars.

  • You first need to know all parameters with plugin resister meta boxes to use remove_meta_box()

WordPress has remove_meta_box() function. You can use it to remove meta box


function remove_post_meta_box() {
    remove_meta_box( 'meta_box_id' , 'post' , 'normal' ); 
add_action( 'admin_menu' , 'remove_post_meta_box' );
