If we run our code as it is right now, the meta boxes did not appear. Why? Because we only configured what was different in the Portfolio and Subtitle configuration models. We need to merge each of those with the default configuration parameters. Let’s do that in this episode.
You’ll be using the PHP function
array_replace_recursive to merge all levels within our multidimensional arrays.
When you get done with this episode, both custom meta boxes will now render for a post. WooHoo!! Pat yourself on the back, as you did a lot of work to get to this point.
Keep going as we have more work to do on the Save task and making the get all keys reusable.
Who needs copy/paste? Right. Writing code from scratch is fun!
