As the title says, I am a non-coder. Actually, an old geezer non-coder.
And, I want to code a form into a widget in the site dashboards on a multisite network.
I want the form to have an input box for a post title, a browse and upload box for featured image and thumbnail (custom field name = thumb), and an input box for a post of content.
I would then like the site admin to be able to click a submit button and have the data replace the existing data in a post that is in a category hidden from them by a plugin named "Restrict Categories."
The post would be in a category named /featured/ and have a URL of http://mysite.com/featured/mypost/
I am thinking it uses functions that are above my skill level. Things like get_page_by_path ... which are totally alien to old geezer thinking.
I know how to add widgets to the dashboard, but not how to code this form so it works properly on each site. Can anyone give me some ideas on how to code it?
Many thinks for any ideas and help you can give!
Or, many thanks for even just looking at this post, since there are now 1,154,066 posts in this category, and there were 1,154,054 when I started typing.
How the Sam Hill do you folks keep up with all this support?
