So how to disable the sanitizing for just this field without breaking the default?
It turns out to be so simple, there's an Advanced tab on the settings for the custom textarea field where you can add an Attribute. The "sanitize_callback" with the value "none" is one such Attribute. So that's really all you have to do.
No longer do I need to edit the sanitizer.php file and comment out the textarea field on line 89 everytime the metabox plugin gets updated!
I used to have to comment out line #89 in the plugin sanitizer.php file every time the Metabox plugin got updated :-(
Below is a short video from Anh Tran the metabox.io developer made showing how to set the textarea custom field attribute "sanitize_callback" to "none"

If you don’t use the Excerpt field in your posts and rely on WordPress to grab the first few dozen words of your post content what you usually find is the excerpt when displayed on the front end (usually in some sort of archive or post grid display) will have most of the html tags removed leaving you with a single block of plain text.
If I go to the bother of formatting my post content to make it more interesting and easier to read and understand I’d like that formatting to be preserved even in that post’s excerpt.

If you have custom post types though, they are not included in the default URL:

The client wanted to display a list of past events in a scrollable column. This was easy to implement using simple css. The page layout was done with Beaver Builder, but the solution should work for any html container.

Sometimes you want to present a navigation menu as a horizontal “mega-menu” instead of a hierarchal dropdown menu. This is really simple if you are using Beaver Builder. The mega-menu feature is built in, but is unfortunately hidden. You have to know the secret to turn it on.

I needed to format a number field (999,999,999), coming from a custom field number-format (no other characters permitted in the number entry field). No “$” no commas or decimal points, etc. to output as a normal currency format.
When displaying the number I could add a “$” in front of the number, but couldn’t find a way to format the number since you can’t do that with CSS.
