I have a solid programming background but am brand new to wordpress(never written a plugin or a theme just basic stuff from the admin dashboard). I need to write a simple plugin that will add two sub-pages to the posts menu on the admin dashboard. The pages will be forms allowing users to input the post title, a featured image, a few paragraphs and list items. When the user submits the form the plugin will need to take the users input add some formatting and then create a new post. The point of this plugin is to allow many authors to quickly create posts that have a standard look across the site. I am reading through the plugin api looking for what I need now, I'm not looking for someone to write it for me, but if someone could kinda give me a jumpstart in the right direction, or point me to some pages that might help it would be greatly appreciated.
