Before Custom Quick/Bulk Edit Plugin for WordPress

In helping Media Burn Archive with speeding up mass updates for video meta fields, we found the easiest solution to be via WordPress’s action calls. Specifically the bulk_edit_custom_box and quick_edit_custom_box actions.

While reading the documentation for bulk_edit_custom_box and quick_edit_custom_box initially only gave a clue, two further references shed more light to really getting things done.

While putting all of these resources together helped greatly, the final solution adapts for custom post types and minor security checks. There’s still more to do, but for now, it’s good enough.
