Support » Fixing WordPress » Need help in changing the output of wp_dropdown_pages

  • Hello there,

    I was working on this for a while now and I can’t seem to wrap my head around this. I have a customer who would like to have a drop down list of pages when they create a new post.

    What the drop down list would do is add the post title of that selected page to the body of the content. I’ve manage to get a working meta box with the following code that will insert the selected page id into the body.

    My problem is that I want the post title to be inserted instead of the post id.

    Here is the code I’m using in a plugin:

    function dr_meta_boxes() {
    global $post;
    echo "<script style=\"text/javascript\">
    	jQuery(function($) {
    		$('#daily_regulars').change(function() {
    		var value = $('#content').val();
    					$('#content').val( value + (value != '<ul><li>' ? '<li>' : '') +$(this).find('option:selected').val() +(value != '</li>' ? '</li>' : ''));
    wp_dropdown_pages(array('child_of' => '225', 'name' => 'daily_regulars'));
    echo '<br />';
    function create_dr_meta_box() {
    global $theme_name;
    if ( function_exists('add_meta_box') ) {
    add_meta_box( 'dr-meta-boxes', 'Regulars of the day', 'dr_meta_boxes', 'post', 'normal', 'high' );
    add_action('admin_menu', 'create_dr_meta_box');
