    Hi, I know that the plugin officially only supports 4.1 and higher but I have a site that for varying reasons cannot at the moment upgrade to a later version. I have installed the metabox plugin and it installs without any problem however I cannnot get certain field types to work.

    I was hoping that there might be a work around to get me by for the moment.

    These are the fields that won’t display (taken from your demo.php)

    Thanks in advance
