When responding to people’s questions about Meta Box and custom fields, I found a lot of senior developers have been integrated Meta Box into their websites deeply. They’ve made the code for meta box registration easier to understand, and organized it very well. In this article, I would like to give some suggestions on how to optimize the code to make meta boxes and custom fields declaration more streamlined and simpler.
TablePress is a powerful plugin for WordPress that allows you to create and manage tables. It has a nice UI and works similar to Excel. Tables can contain any type of data, even formulas. It features sorting, pagination, filtering, and more. However, TablePress only supports inserting the tables into posts, pages via shortcode, which makes it less flexible if you want to display the tables elsewhere. In this post, we’ll show you how to use Meta Box to create a custom field for TablePress and display the selected table in a custom location in your page templates.

Custom fields help customers enter data easily. They are used a lot in WordPress, especially for non-blog websites. Custom fields provide a convenient way to store data for not only logical processing (such as product price), but also for presentation purpose (such as landing pages).

Every business website needs landing page to introduce its products and services. This is where users find the most important information about your company and what you offer.
