[resolved] save post and custom field from front end (2 posts)

    Hi!
    I've been looking for hours on end. Want to get an image NAME from another server/domain into a custom field form on my site's front end without logging in. The images are supposed to stay on that other server. I just need to store the names and couldn't find a way with custom fields in the $post array. My array (only for testing) looks like this:

    $post = array(
    'comment_status' => 'open',
    'post_category' => array(3),
    'post_content' => $write_post_content,
    'post_status' => 'publish',
    'post_title' => $write_post_title,
    'post_type' => 'post',
    'tags_input' => 'custom design','my designs'
    );

    // Insert the post into the database
    wp_insert_post( $post,$wp_error );

    Now, how do you get something like a post meta name and value (something like the below) in there in the wp_insert_post function? As you understand I'm not all that good at programming ;)

    add_post_meta($post_id, 'my_image_url', $write_post_image;, true);

    Oops. Tagging this "resolved" and bumping to coding/hacks.
