Meta Box is amazing. Meta Box is required very basic development skills. But considering all aspects, it's awesome. It is the best Developer friendly plugin in WordPress Custom Fields plugin list. I was using ACF plugin. It's very very good and very popular. So, with due respect to the ACF plugin, Meta Box is an awesome better than to all of Custom Fields plugin. The best part I like, it reduces Databases to use, and for only this think, I moved to Meta Box. ACF uses the database twice. Because, if you are using ACF for a big site, Your database space will be doubled. Just think. A lot will be written in detail. So I ended up here.

If you need one tool to manage all : custom post/types/taxonomy/fields and views for all of them. Clean metaboxes, cleanest code, polished plugin. Multiple extensions, some advanced ones must be paid (best investment I made, and license is not limited to one site). Ie., the relationship plugin (free) made to establish bi-directionnal relations between posts<->pages<->CPT<->taxonomies was a lifesaver for me 🙂

I bought the complete package and am more than satisfied with it. Very easy to use, well documented. But what I am most impressed of is the support. I have raised quite a number of questions, and each time within 24 hours the issue was resolved. Excellent!!

If you're an advanced developer, or learning to extend the power of WP with custom fields or any kind of custom post meta, Metabox is an absolute game changer. This is one of the oldest and most robust customization plugins in the repo, and it just keeps getting better with time. It's a bit different to some of the competition in this area, notably in how lightweight it is, and the support is excellent. Will it tie your shoelaces and pack your lunch for you? No, of course not! With a bit of effort and a willingness to learn on your part though, it will begin to open up completely new possibilities in your custom WordPress projects. Top-notch, a genuinely outstanding tool, love it!

I use Meta Box and its addons on every web project these days. Every single one. It’s fast, clean, and it gets the job done. Fantastic set of plugins.

It's not perfect and could be a little more geared towards developers, but it's the only tool I use to build metaboxes and I have used all the free and paid plugins.
