To make our save functionality reusable, we need to remap our custom fields’ configurations to rearrange and group them into defaults, delete state, and sanitizer function. Although you could do it in the configuration model itself, that requires you to be redundant, repeating the meta key over and over. Don’t do that. Instead, let’s build a function that programmatically remaps (rearranges) what we need for our save by grouping the keys together.
This is a common software task.
This is a common task you’ll do in programming. There are times when the input you receive needs to be reformatted before you can work on it. Let’s walk through the thought process and then build it together.
Your functions are bloated. Put them on a diet. Think "skinny" and "as few lines as possible."
