I'm just getting going with WP3's custom post types, and in the process of setting up custom meta boxes for the custom fields in use on an existing site.
In the existing system, the client has to upload the image using the uploader, and then grab the URL for that image, and then paste that url into a custom field with the appropriate key. Tedious, and not ideal, but it works.
I was hoping to use a media uploader tool of some kind, but the default media uploader which allows me to attach media to the post is attached to the Editor, which I don't want to include on these custom post types.
Moreover, after a LOT of searching, I can't find a single snippet of documentation of using the media uploader outside of the default post-type. My guess is that it's the uploader mechanism from TinyMCE, but even so, is anyone aware of a usable tutorial or set of docs which describe how to access / use the media uploading system via WP functions?
Thanks in advance,
