Display a custom post type’s media library inline

Ninja Forms Review - add new form

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordress theme will display a custom post type's media library inline. This is a great little trick that will display the gallery using an iframe and will function exactly the same as the popup does.

  define('MY_POST_TYPE', 'my');
  define('MY_POST_SLUG', 'gallery');

  function my_register_post_type () {
  	$args = array (
  		'label' => 'Gallery',
  		'supports' => array( 'title', 'excerpt','thumbnail' ),
  		'register_meta_box_cb' => 'my_meta_box_cb',
  		'show_ui' => true,
  		'query_var' => true
  	register_post_type( MY_POST_TYPE , $args );
  add_action( 'init', 'my_register_post_type' );

  function my_meta_box_cb () {
  	add_meta_box( MY_POST_TYPE . '_details' , 'Media Library', 'my_meta_box_details', MY_POST_TYPE, 'normal', 'high' );

  function my_meta_box_details () {
  	global $post;
    $post_ID = $post->ID; 
  	printf( "<iframe frameborder='0' src=' %s ' style='width: 100%%; height: 400px;'> </iframe>", get_upload_iframe_src('media') );

    Thanks… very useful

  2. Thanks Kevin.

  3. If you want your booth to exude a sophisticated,
    polished style, consider soft flooring that mimics the look of a beautiful
    hardwood floor. If your company’s image is more fun loving, a custom trade show
    carpet in bold color blocks is a great choice. If you’re selling tools or auto
    parts, consider rubber matting from recycled tires – it’s durable and
    eco-friendly as well.
