Ready, Set, Go!
If you can create a menu in your WordPress admin dashboard, you already know how to create a Meta Box.
Use the drag-and-drop interface to arrange meta boxes in a flash and just the way you want. Then, have the results automatically ready to display on the front end just like a WordPress menu.
All other tasks like developing the meta boxes and fields, and registering or integrating them are automatically taken care of for you so you don’t have to lift a finger.
No need to fret over how to customize where (and when!) your meta boxes are displayed.
You can set location, priorities, context, and conditional logic for each meta box and field so they only show up on the page at the exact time and place you want.
With all the options available from the WordPress admin, you have ultimate and precise control over your meta boxes and custom fields—all without writing a single line of code to boot.
Take the PHP and Run
It's a lightweight option for developing meta boxes and custom fields with none of the effort.
There's no need for code here because it's already all done.
If you want to take it up a notch and create a ridiculously lightweight option, Meta Box Builder generates custom code for you instantly as you create what you need. Whenever you’re ready, you can export everything and run with it. It’s as quick as copying all that automagically created custom code Ctrl + C or ⌘ + C style.
Once that’s done, you can add them to any other WordPress website by pasting the custom exported code into the child theme’s functions.php file.
You don’t need to have the Meta Box Builder extension enabled on the new site-just the ultra-lightweight Meta Box plugin which is free from settings and admin pages so you won’t even notice it’s there.
That also means you can import your meta boxes and custom fields to as many WordPress sites as you want. Whether you want them all to have the same fields and settings or something completely custom is entirely up to you.
Easily Output Fields In Your Themes
Meta Box Builder also automatically generates the code to get field values to put in your themes. So you don't have to go though the intensive documentation to find the functions to get and display fields.
You can simply copy and paste the code into your themes or plugins. The generated code has many variations that work in different situations. That's a time saver for Meta Box developers.
Create Gutenberg Blocks With Ease
Meta Box Builder also lets you create custom Gutenberg blocks without touching code. You can define the block settings with UI and write the block template within the builder easily.
There's no need to set up React or Webpack for Gutenberg. Everything is PHP and straightforward.
Note that, to make Gutenberg block works, you need the MB Blocks extension enabled.
