I want a plugin to place custom content below the post title, and to the right of the permalink. However, I cannot find a specific action reference to hook into. The screenshot demonstrates the location idea.

How this would be done in pre-3.5 Wordpress ? Is there a specific action reference?

Location of rendered content

I'm just curious, what kind of page builder to you have installed there? – birgire Oct 10 '13 at 10:53

You cannot add something on the same line, but right after the permalink box is an action: edit_form_after_title.

See How do I position meta_box on post edit screen? for an example.

Also, you don’t even know if there is enough room for a second box on the permalink line. There are other plugins extending the width of that box to full width.

Unfortunately I'm running Wordpress 3.4.1. Is there another, now possibly more hacky way to trigger it? – Joseph Oct 10 '13 at 12:25
Update immediately. – toscho Oct 10 '13 at 12:51
I am sadly restrained in my ability to do so. I will inject some content into a hidden div, then use javascript to position it correctly. Even though I hate doing this! – Joseph Oct 10 '13 at 13:17
You really need to try to sell that update to whoever has the power to do it. 3.4.1 is pretty old. – s_ha_dum Oct 10 '13 at 14:37
