1.1 Introduction

Hello, and welcome to this tuts plus course on creating custom meta boxes in WordPress. My name's Rachel McCollin, and in this course, I'm gonna show you how to create two plugins, each of which will create a custom meta box to go in a different place on the post editing screen. So the first meta box we'll create, we'll go down here under the post content. And we'll use that to save some post metadata. The second meta box we'll create will be over here on the right hand side. And that will store some text that gives people help when they're editing posts. We'll then move on to looking at how our meta boxes are affected by the Gutenberg post editor. Watch this course and find out how to create meta boxes.
