This post will explain how to easily implement custom meta boxes in your WordPress theme by using the Theme Toolkit provided by Theme Foundation. If you don’t want to use the toolkit, but are interested in implementing custom meta boxes from scratch, please see WordPress Meta Boxes: a Comprehensive Developer’s Guide.
This tutorial will attempt to cover everything you could possibly want to know about using meta boxes in WordPress. Keep in mind this tutorial is written from a theme perspective. Much of the information will apply to plugins as well, but there will be a few minor differences.
The add_meta_box() function was added to WordPress in version 2.5, so it’s been around a while. If you read this whole tutorial, you’ll be around a while as well. So let’s get started…
This post will explain how to easily implement the WordPress theme customizer in your WordPress theme by using the Theme Toolkit provided by Theme Foundation. If you’re not interested in saving time and energy by using the theme toolkit, please see my previous tutorial explaining how to implement the theme customizer from scratch. Let’s get started.

In this tutorial, we will look at exactly how this feature can be added to a theme. The WordPress theme we will use for this example will be the Responsive theme version 188.8.131.52, by Emil Uzelac. This is one of the featured themes on WordPress.org at the moment and should give us a solid starting point. However, please feel free to use whatever theme you’d like as you follow along.
Hello, and welcome to the Theme Foundation project. My name is Alex Mansfield and I am the sole developer behind Theme Foundation (at least for now). I am currently constructing a modular theme toolkit that will allow advanced features to be quickly and easily added to new and existing WordPress themes. The toolkit is in private beta at the moment, and includes modules for building custom metaboxes, theme options pages, and utilizing the WordPress theme customizer introduced in WordPress 3.4. Along with releasing the theme toolkit, I will be writing in-depth tutorials covering all the features included in the toolkit. If there are any features you would like to see included in the toolkit, please let me know. Thanks!
