Display a custom post type’s media library inline

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') );
}
