Add additional meta boxes to Hybrid Theme



At the time of writing this post I have Theme Hybrid as my parent theme, and am using a custom version of Hybrid News that Justin Tadlock offers to the public.

Well I want to tell you how you can add additional custom meta boxes to your child theme’s running the Hybrid Theme.

In your child function.php file just add the following to create a new post meta box:

* Add additional post meta boxes
* by WPCult
function wpcult_post_meta_boxes($meta_boxes) {
	$meta_boxes['image'] = array(
		'name' => 'image',
		'default' => '',
		'title' => __('Image:'),
		'type' => 'text',
		'show_description' => false,
		'description' => __('Please use a full size image, larger than 500px (this photo will dynamically re-size itself!'),
	return $meta_boxes;
add_filter('hybrid_post_meta_boxes', 'wpcult_post_meta_boxes');

This will create a custom meta box called Image, and will create a custom field with the id of image.

Additionally you can create this on pages as well by copy/paste and replacing “post_meta_box” with “page_meta_box” every where inside the function.

    Nice hack Frosty, it works… 😀 btw, what’s the purpose of this new meta box?

      I use it to generate dynamic resized images with a image php file I’ve got. Think if you need to add a simple meta box to add to custom fields.
