I know this is probably easy, but I'm having a hard time creating a select box that populates with the posts from a custom post type. Can this be done? Can someone point me to some documentation? Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

I think you can create such a select box using Views:

1) create a view filter with selet your custom post type
2) click "View/Edit Meta HTML" button
populates it as a select dropdown menu, like this:

<!-- wpv-loop-start -->
   <select name="my-posts">
         <option value="[wpv-post-id]">[wpv-post-title]</option>
<!-- wpv-loop-end -->

There isn't documentation for it


Perfect. Thanks!
