Some meta keys are not saved

I have created a couple of custom post types with meataboxes. All of a sudden some of the meta values are no longer saved. For example, a meta value with the key _cp_url is saved, whilst the key _cp_coulour is not (both are text fields).

It looks like keys that exists in other cpt's meta is saved, biut not new ones.

I don't really get why this is happening. Any idea on where to start?

    Greetings spirokommunikation,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Is this issue with custom post types and metaboxes related to a certain plugin our WPMU DEV's or theme or? Or perhaps just with custom post types with metaboxes in general?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Greetings spirokommunikation,

    Thank you for the additional clarification and the bringing this bizarre behavior to our attention.

    Though I do not have an answer as to what could possibly be causing this issue, it is my opinion that the next do is to perform standard troubleshooting protocol to see if something else is messing with your installation and your head.

    It is time to go into full blown trouble shooting mode because it appears there may be some conflict here and one way to find out conclusively.

    Standard plugin trouble shooting protocol - first to switch to the Twenty Eleven theme just long enough to check for the problem - if the problem still exists next involves deactivating all plugins except the plugin in question and then see if the issue still exists.

    If it does not, then you want to activate plugins one at a time testing in between to see if the issue returns. Even when you find one plugin, it may be in your interest to deactivate the problem plugin and continue testing the rest of the plugins to insure no others are also conflicting.

    You will know the conflict when the issue returns and which plugin(s) you activated that cause the issue.

    Please advise if there are any plugin conflicts and if so what the plugins are that are conflicting.

    Cheers, Joe
