Custom database select query from admin?
Does anyone know if this is possible? I have a custom write panel on my page writing screen, and what I want to do is add a select menu with special options. I thought that perhaps I could use a custom database select query to look up all posts in a custom post type called “Flowers”, and then echo out the titles as options in the select menu.
It’s a weird request, I know, but I’d love to figure if it can be done. Can I have a database query from a custom write panel?
I had tried this but everything died:
global $wpdb, $post; $results = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT $wpdb->posts.* FROM $wpdb->posts, $wpdb->postmeta WHERE $wpdb->posts.ID = $wpdb->postmeta.post_id AND $wpdb->posts.post_status = 'publish' AND $wpdb->posts.post_type = 'Flowers' ORDER BY $wpdb->posts.post_title ASC LIMIT 0, 100"); if ( $results ): foreach ($results as $post) : setup_postdata( $post ); endforeach;
