    Hi
    I'm new to wordpress and I'm playing with my new toy :)
    I'm trying to create a plugin, it is ok for the first steps. Now I have menu entry with a specific post_type and when editing the items I would like to not have the standard layout.
    Instead of "edit item, new" and the default fields , I would like to create my own PHP/HTML/CSS layout to give more control and options.
    As I'm new I don't know how to do that, may be someone here can help me and give me few suggestions :)
    Thank you !

    Hi. There are a couple of pages of documentation you might refer to that will be helpful:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_Admin_Themes
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Templates
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_API

    You can use the information there to create and style your own admin theme panels with the layout you prefer.

    There are also a number of plugins designed to help make the development of new admin screens and other features much easier, like

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/admin-page-framework/
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/options-framework/

    so you may want to consider using one of those until you get the hang of more custom admin function/theme development.

    Have fun!
