Drop down menu in Posts metabox populated with values from Custom Post Type
Can anyone direct me to tutorials or discussions so I can learn how to use the values from a a custom post type in a drop down menu on the “New Post” page
Here’s what I envision:
I’ll make a custom post type called “Person”, which has fields called “name” & “company”.
When my data entry person makes a new Post, I want them to see a meta box with a drop down menu populated with the names from the Person post type
I’m basically trying to link ‘authors’ to a post without having to make users. By using a custom post type it will be easy for my data entry person to enter new names, and with a taxonomy page I can simulate an Author page.
I’m not afraid of coding, I’m just not sure where to start.
