Ok, so I'm feeling pretty dumb. I've been working online since 1994, and not much fazes me, but I have NO CLUE how to make Meta Box work in my site.
I have it installed (Meta Box and AIO).
I created a post type—Live Events.
I created a custom field set for events that includes a date-time picker, a duration, and two URLs.
And...nothing. Nada. No idea how to see those custom fields or edit them. I don't see a drag and drop anything.
I've looked through the documentation, and I don't see a quick-start guide, or a simple how-to of steps. I feel like I have a ton of power waiting, and I have literally zero idea on how to make use of it.
I also searched the forums. And it may be related to the permalink (I'm working on a staging site), but that was supposed to be fixed, and since I'm flying blind (because I can't find anything on how this SHOULD work for me when starting), I have no idea if I'm experiencing a bug or my stupidity.
