In this short class, Topher takes an intermediate-level approach to quickly creating custom post types and meta boxes.
First, using a plugin called GenerateWP, you'll create the code for your custom post type. Its as simple as selecting a tool, filling in the form and generating the code.
Second, using a plugin called CMB2, you'll quickly add metaboxes to admin forms and content types.
This class is compliments the WordPress Bed and Breakfast Site class.
