I’d like to create a custom meta box for my custom post-type and have gone through a number of tutorials that are either too simple, or too complex for my needs.
Ones I have gone through so far:
I’ve also tried to look up Meta Box in my Digging Into WordPress 3.4 PDF, but can’t seem to find anything on it.
Long story short, I’d like to create a meta box for my Products custom post-type, that has 6 simple text input fields.
But first, some details you might need to know:
Custom Post-type: Products
Custom Post-type ID: products
Meta Box Name / ID: Product Details
I’d appreciate being pointed in the right direction (with a link to a decent tutorial) or even more so with a code snippet from a willing helper.
Thanks in advance.
@jonedwards I use the WPAlchemy plugin. Here is my entire snippet that is located in functions.php
Note: My metabox only consists of a description textarea
Thanks for this. It’s certainly a start. Appreciate it.
Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks Doc. I’ve actually gone an used this one… The Gallery Field is particularly handy.
