I'm using Include/Exclude to include meta boxes on a frontend form, while making sure they don't show up on the form in the admin area (which already has the fields provided by a plugin). The meta boxes display properly based on the include parameters, but a few field types won't save unless I remove the Include/Exclude code.
Image select/upload, date and datetime all fail to save when using Include/Exclude code, even though they display properly.
The only Include/Exclude code I am using on the meta boxes is:
This is not the way of the extension MB Include Exclude works. If you set a meta box shows when the page/post has the template abc123.php, it will show in the backend (admin area) if you select the template here https://share.getcloudapp.com/QwuEpooy
If you want to show a meta box and custom fields on the frontend form only, you can check if the admin area does not load.
