My custom post type has 5 custom meta boxes which use wp_editor. Visually I can format the content but when saved, all the formatting is gone.

For example I made a portion of my content bold, but when I save / update, the formatting is no longer there both in front end and back end (when I go back to edit the same post).

What is the right way to do this?

    Maybe your save function strips the HTML tags. What's your metabox code?
