I have a meta box that I am trying to add to my WP site,

Hi,

I have a meta box that I am trying to add to my WP site, and I can get the metabox to show, the only problem is it won’t save and I am not sure why, I have followed a tutorial and it works fine with a post, but when I use it for a page it shows and works fine apart from the data won’t save.

The code is (sorry its long):

<?php
$prefix = 'cp_';

$meta_box = array(
'id' => 'my-meta-box',
'title' => 'Custom meta box',
'page' => 'page',
'context' => 'normal',
'priority' => 'high',
'fields' => array(
array(
'name' => 'Text box',
'desc' => 'Enter something here',
'id' => $prefix . 'text',
'type' => 'text',
'std' => 'Default value 1'
),
array(
'name' => 'Textarea',
'desc' => 'Enter big text here',
'id' => $prefix . 'textarea',
'type' => 'textarea',
'std' => 'Default value 2'
),
array(
'name' => 'Select box',
'id' => $prefix . 'select',
'type' => 'select',
'options' => array('Option 1', 'Option 2', 'Option 3')
),
array(
'name' => 'Radio',
'id' => $prefix . 'radio',
'type' => 'radio',
'options' => array(
array('name' => 'Name 1', 'value' => 'Value 1'),
array('name' => 'Name 2', 'value' => 'Value 2')
)
),
array(
'name' => 'Checkbox',
'id' => $prefix . 'checkbox',
'type' => 'checkbox'
)
)
);

add_action('admin_menu', 'mytheme_add_box');

// Add meta box
function mytheme_add_box() {
global $meta_box;

add_meta_box($meta_box['id'], $meta_box['title'], 'mytheme_show_box', $meta_box['page'], $meta_box['context'], $meta_box['priority']);
}

// Callback function to show fields in meta box
function mytheme_show_box() {
global $meta_box, $post;

// Use nonce for verification
echo '<input type="hidden" name="mytheme_meta_box_nonce" value="', wp_create_nonce(basename(__FILE__)), '" />';

echo '<table class="form-table">';

foreach ($meta_box['fields'] as $field) {
// get current post meta data
$meta = get_post_meta($post->ID, $field['id'], true);

echo '<tr>',
'<th style="width:20%"><label for="', $field['id'], '">', $field['name'], '</label></th>',
'<td>';
switch ($field['type']) {
case 'text':
echo '<input type="text" name="', $field['id'], '" id="', $field['id'], '" value="', $meta ? $meta : $field['std'], '" size="30" style="width:97%" />',
'<br />', $field['desc'];
break;
case 'textarea':
echo '<textarea name="', $field['id'], '" id="', $field['id'], '" cols="60" rows="4" style="width:97%">', $meta ? $meta : $field['std'], '</textarea>',
'<br />', $field['desc'];
break;
case 'select':
echo '<select name="', $field['id'], '" id="', $field['id'], '">';
foreach ($field['options'] as $option) {
echo '<option', $meta == $option ? ' selected="selected"' : '', '>', $option, '</option>';
}
echo '</select>';
break;
case 'radio':
foreach ($field['options'] as $option) {
echo '<input type="radio" name="', $field['id'], '" value="', $option['value'], '"', $meta == $option['value'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' />', $option['name'];
}
break;
case 'checkbox':
echo '<input type="checkbox" name="', $field['id'], '" id="', $field['id'], '"', $meta ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' />';
break;
}
echo '<td>',
'</tr>';
}

echo '</table>';
}

add_action('save_post', 'mytheme_save_data');

// Save data from meta box
function mytheme_save_data($post_id) {
global $meta_box;

// verify nonce
if (!wp_verify_nonce($_POST['mytheme_meta_box_nonce'], basename(__FILE__))) {
return $post_id;
}

// check autosave
if (defined('DOING_AUTOSAVE') && DOING_AUTOSAVE) {
return $post_id;
}

// check permissions
if ('page' == $_POST['post_type']) {
if (!current_user_can('edit_page', $post_id)) {
return $post_id;
}
} elseif (!current_user_can('edit_post', $post_id)) {
return $post_id;
}

foreach ($meta_box['fields'] as $field) {
$old = get_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], true);
$new = $_POST[$field['id']];

if ($new && $new != $old) {
update_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], $new);
} elseif ('' == $new && $old) {
delete_post_meta($post_id, $field['id'], $old);
}
}
}

?>

Any advice would be very much appreciated!
