    'id' => 'personal',                            // meta box id, unique per meta box
    'title' => 'Personal Information',            // meta box title
    'pages' => array('post', 'page', 'album'),    // post types, accept custom post types as well, default is array('post'); optional

            'name' => 'Full name',                    // field name
            'desc' => 'Format: Firstname Lastname',    // field description, optional
            'id' => $prefix . 'fname',                // field id, i.e. the meta key
            'type' => 'text',                        // text box
