I created an alternative to the default WordPress Admin panel for my writers to use as I wanted more flexibility (in design) and a simpler interface. I've been successful thus far but I can't seem to figure out how to take the "Add New Post" page from the default wp-admin to my custom page.

What I mean is, I would like to take all of this enter image description here

and put it on my own page. I've looked over the post-new.php and edit.php scripts but have had no luck.

Is this even possible?

I have just discovered the wp_editor function...but is it possible to add all the other things from the "Add New Post" page as well (such as the featured image, tags, categories sections, etc...)?

Do you want it in front-end or back-end (in /wp-admin)? – Mayeenul Islam Jan 2 '14 at 8:45
I believe it would be considered back-end as I'm essentially creating a second wp-admin. – Jason Chen Jan 2 '14 at 8:54
Please can you explain. Is this a new custom post type or the default edit, create post screen with changes on design? The String is from the init of a post type and it is possible to change via translation or hook. – bueltge Jan 2 '14 at 9:24
It's a create post screen. What I'm trying to do is create a new "create post" screen that's identitcal to the default one in wp-admin, just have it on a different page. – Jason Chen Jan 2 '14 at 9:35
You might get some tips from github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso. It's an open-source project that rebuilt the entire admin section of WP. – jgraup Jan 16 at 17:48
