WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm writing a plugin that realies on custom post types, new taxonomy and few custom fields.

All this data will be private (not queryable or searchable).

I'd like to provide an admin page to the user, to add and edit this data in a more suer-friendly way.

For instance, the custom post type will have only a title and the excerpt field, one taxonomy and the custom fields.

I know how to add meta boxes to a custom post type, but this is not enough to me.

I'd like to make a completely custom html interface that will take care of adding/saving/deleting che custom post type and handle the taxonomy and metas.

Just to be clear, I know already ho to write a normal plugin and handle plugin's options.

I don't know how, with this plugin I can:

  • Add a new menu item in Wordpress admin menu
  • In this menu item, handle, with a custom interface, the custom post type

There is some how-to out there that could help me achieving this?

take a look at wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-user-frontend –  Bainternet Apr 16 '12 at 6:43
    
Nainternet, it looks like I wasn't very clear about my question. I will update it appropriately. –  Andrea Sciamanna Apr 16 '12 at 7:24
    
I suggested that plugin since you can use it to create, update and delete cpt,taxonomy terms, and custom fields form the front-end which is basically what you want just look at its code. –  Bainternet Apr 16 '12 at 7:52
    
Bainternet, I understand your point, but since mine is already a plugin, I don't want users to be forced to install another plugin to make mine working. I need a solution that I can implement inside my plugin. Actually what I need is just some guideline that helps me on getting this result. –  Andrea Sciamanna Apr 16 '12 at 11:20

You will need to start reading about the setting and options API, and then pull your CPT and Taxonomies into it.

Have a start here:
