over a year ago i've written some plugins for my clients that i want to rework now. Though i've been out a while i'm still as familiar with it as I've been at the time of writing.
One problem though i've encountered is that i was unable to find out how i can really use all the cool wordpress features in my own plugin.
- I want to be able to use the wordpress editor with all it's formatting features for my own formular (i.e. for a description text of some entry of my own db table
- I want the output of my plugin to use "the loop" (?) I.E. i have a download plugin and in my own output i want to be able to write [download id=1] for it to get converted by the asociated plugin accordingly
The way i handle my plugin output right now is the only thing i was able to find out about with my knowledge, basically it's like this
add_filter('the_content', array(&$class, 'class_callback'), 7);
whereas class_callback contains
return str_replace('CLASS_TAG', 'My Output', $sIn);
Any informational links helping me with the things I want to achieve will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance, too!
