I need an idea about how to open a popup which contain only post created form in wordpress admin.

What I am doing is, I created a custom post type and in that I added dropdown of normal posts. admin can select post from it during creating custom post type. At this stage it is fine.

But if there is no post then I am displaying a link "Create New Post" with link to "/wp-admin/post-new.php". so when admin click on it, he redirect to that page.

BUT my idea is I want to open a popup of create post same as post-new.php page and admin can create post at same time (without redirect).

Is their any form API in wordpress because I want to show all metaboxes that other plugins added to post-new.php.

  • I want to use same form for any content type, thats why i need an idea with form API... – avinashphp Feb 14 '14 at 12:21
  • Well, you will need write code for a popup window. Using some jquery plugin such as fancybox. And in that window you will could load the post-new.php page via ajax. Most people here are willing to help as long as you show that you have done some work, have tried to write some code. – gdaniel Feb 14 '14 at 16:04
