Meta Box Columns

There are occasionally situations when you register multiple fields in a meta box (such as information about an artist or a person), listing all fields one by one down the side will make the edit page “long” and hard to see an overview of the information. In this case, reorganizing fields by putting them in the same row will give you a better layout, making it easier for you to see/add information.

The Meta Box Columns is an extension for the¬†Meta Box plugin which helps you solve this problem. It allows you to organize fields in a 12-column grid with ease.¬†Think of the CSS grid like Bootstrap, this plugin works exactly the same (but it doesn’t use Bootstrap’s CSS, of course).
