Working With Meta Boxes in WordPress

with

In this course we’re going to look at how to implement our own custom WordPress meta boxes using WordPress best practices, coding standards, and APIs.

Specifically, we’re going to develop a plugin that adds a custom meta box with the following functionality:

  • Attach an MP3 to any given post
  • Specify a title for the MP3
  • Make sure that we can upload only MP3 files
  • Display a link to the MP3 file via the song title on the single post page
