Creating admin-only internal reference archive
Hello – I’m not sure if the above is the best title, but I’ve been struggling to find information about this, so perhaps I’m phrasing it wrongly.
In short, I’d like to set up an internal archive, which only admins can access in the backend. I imagine having a custom post type, which allows me to upload text, images and documents in the admin, so that I can reference these posts later.
Why do I want to do this? We do a lot of web design and sometimes designs get rejected, but we think the design is still really good. So we’d like to build up an online archive in the backend, where we can upload a screengrab, source files (PSD, AI) and write a short blurb about the design.
Ideally there would be an overview page where all designs are listed, with a thumbnail and excerpt, possibly with the ability to filter on tags.
Oh, and all uploaded files would need to be accessible only to admins and not viewable to frontend visitors.
The closest to something like this that I’ve found (which isn’t really that close), is Mark Jaquith’s WP Help plugin, that uses custom posts to create an admin user guide.
Not really expecting there to be a plugin for this, but would be really interested in hearing if someone else has done something similar and/or if anyone knows any resources where to get started?
