    So I guess this is a broad question but Im trying to do a couple things here.

    1 - I want to add a couple custom fields to my new post page and have the input added to the wp_postmeta table.
    2- Then, Id like to remove features from the text area part of the new post. I only want users to be able to add pictures with it anyway. I WAS editing the global.css file to display:none the stuff I didnt want but I was told not to do that (also I dont know how to package that in a way so if people download the theme they could easily replace the file)
    3 - Id like to have a secondary custom post function on my dashboard.

    If I can just get some links to examples or maybe a little code I think I should be good. Thanks!

    1. If you don't have Custom fields when writing a New Post, make sure Custom Fields is checked under the Screen Options. Some plugins provide custom field 'management' - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-field-template/
    2. TinyMCE_Custom_Buttons or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cms-post-control/
    3. Look at using a Custom Post Type - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/

    actually im trying to achieve all this without the use of plugins. I was told the functions.php file was for modifying the dashboard and adding custom fields. I already know what type of inputs I want, i jut have to figure out how to put them into the create new pot page.
