[resolved] Beyond Custom fields - post page additions (3 posts)

    I'm wanting to convert my custom WP hacks to plugins - basically just two select boxes I added to the post page right below the post box textarea that query a separate database on my server for the selection list (I only use wordpress for article managmenet - products are done with a separate CMS).

    I've looked through several plugin tutorials but I'm not sure how to add custom things to the post page via a plugin - all of them just seem to show how to add completely separate admin menus.

    Thanks Michael.

    After looking at that example plugin a bit I also found this blog post to be helpful, if anyone else is looking to do the same:
