I want to add some custom fields to allow a user to select items from the Media library for the custom post (in the add/edit view)

Is there a way to do this?


My answer will be in the form of links.

The WPAlchemy meta box class supports this: http://www.farinspace.com/wpalchemy-metabox/ + tutorial http://www.farinspace.com/wordpress-media-uploader-integration/

A tutorial on how to do it, mainly javascript: http://www.webmaster-source.com/2010/01/08/using-the-wordpress-uploader-in-your-plugin-or-theme/

  • thats cool. I dont really like the idea of having someone elses classes on there. just a simple howto. but i guess this works – qodeninja May 19 '11 at 22:07

You could add

<a href="#" class="button insert-media add_media" data-editor="content" title="Add Media">
    <span class="wp-media-buttons-icon"></span> Add Media

to a metabox

  • In order for that to be useful you'd need the code for catching the selected file as a form value. – jerrygarciuh Oct 16 '19 at 19:47
