How to save the meta data in wordpress custom post type

Custom post type are very important in wordpress. There are some nice plugins for creating the post type but I recommend custom code in function.php file.

I already written about custom post type. If you want to know about custom post type in detail then you can use following articles.

Here in this tutorial I showed How to save the meta data for your custom post type.

add_action( 'add_meta_boxes', 'job_detail_box' );

function job_detail_box() {
add_meta_box(
'job_detail_box',
__( 'job Detail', 'myplugin_textdomain' ),
'job_detail_box_content',
'job',
'normal',
'high'
);
}

function job_detail_box_content( $post ) {
// No need to globalise a post that is an argument on this callback
$meta_p = get_post_meta($post->ID, "jobs_price", true);
$meta_l = get_post_meta($post->ID, "jobs_location", true);

echo '<input type="hidden" name="jobs-nonce" id="jobs-nonce" value="' . wp_create_nonce( 'jobs-nonce' ) . '" />';

?>
<div>
<ul>
<li><label>job Price</label><input name="jobs_price" value="<?php echo $meta_p; ?>" /></li>
<li><label>job Location</label><input name="jobs_location" size="50" value="<?php echo $meta_l; ?>" /></li>
</ul>
</div>
<?php
}

add_action ('save_post', 'save_jobs');

// The save_post hook provides the post id to the return function
function save_jobs( $post_id ){

if ( !wp_verify_nonce( $_POST['jobs-nonce'], 'jobs-nonce' )) {
return $post_id;
}

if ( !current_user_can( 'edit_post', $post_id ))
return $post_id;

update_post_meta($post_id, "jobs_price", $POST['jobs_price'] );
update_post_meta($post_id, "jobs_location", $POST['jobs_location'] );
}
