The code I am using I got from a tutorial that I purchased from the Envato Tutorials site. It works great. I can copy and paste it right in with no issues. I even saw the slider variable in the database. I had not applied any slides yet so there was no other information. What I have been trying to do was take that code and put it into a meta box inside a custom post type instead of having it show in it’s own admin menu which is what it was originally intended to do. I am not a master coder but from what I do understand, I can’t see any reason as to why this doesn’t work. Can I send you the code only through an email for you to look at?
I am afraid I have not the time to look at your code, but if you learned something from a tutorial, I don’t see the problem to paste here the code that makes you problems.
But anyway, options and post types are saved in a different way. Maybe thats what you are missing?
