I'm working on a plugin and I've added a button to the tinymce editor that pops up a modal form, with options for the shortcode, and then inserts the shortcode with the selected options in to the post.
Here's a snippet. I have the original textbox I was using for category commented out and I was trying to stick that wp function in instead but it's not working. WHat am I missing here? I can't figure out if there's something I need to be calling like a class or some global variable.
<?php ?> <head> <title>Box Shortcode</title> ...Some more html and some js... <input type="radio" name="tax" value="category" id="selcat"> <?php wp_dropdown_categories(); ?> //This doesn't work <!--<div class="input-append"> <input type="text" name="category" id="catselection" class="categorynamebox" placeholder="Category" value="" disabled="disabled" /> </div>--> <label for="randomcat"> <input type="checkbox" id="randomcat" disabled="disabled" > Use a random category </label> ..some more html and js... </body> <?php ?>
