i am using wordpress as a cms for a charity i am currently setting up.
what i would like to do is simplify admin for them by making custom admin panels. e.g. if they want to add an agenda for a meeting i will make a custom form for them in wp-admin which will have a date picker, the wordpress wysiwig editor to add their agenda, and a submit button.
this will then add a post in the 'meetings' category, which will then filter through to the 'meetings' section on the public website.
my question is how to enable use of the wordpress admin panels. the only one i really need is the wysywig editor with autosave, file upload etc. but i would also maybe like to use the publish post sidebar module aswell.
