Meta Box Conditional Logic is an extension of the Meta Box plugin which provides a huge set of visibility options for meta boxes, fields and HTML elements and shows/hide them at ease. Developers can control the relations between fields powerfully and create connections and perform any logic between them.
There are many situation where you want to show or hide a custom field based on the value of another field. Or you want to completely hide a meta box for a page template or a post category. In this case, you need a tool to define the visibility of the custom field or meta box. And that tool is Meta Box Conditional Logic.
The extension helps you to set visibility of custom fields, meta boxes and even custom HTML elements (such as the default WordPress “Tag” meta box or “Publish” button). There are a lot of rules to show / hide elements, such as if value of another field equals, not equals, greater a predefined value or start with a character. You can also combine those rules (such as show a field if user select an option AND the checkbox is checked) to define more complex conditions.
This extension is kind of improvement of the Meta Box Show Hide extension. It has more power, more rules and control more elements.
