How can I utilize the media library for image selection in my plugin?
I am creating a plugin which needs to have a field on its own admin panel
which selects an image. Instead of creating a new image uploader and
manager, I would like to utilize the already existing Media Library in
I have managed to create the link which brings up the thickbox + iframe with
the media library. It seems to be focused on inserting the image into the
HTML needed for the image. I am hoping there is an easy way to alter the
message back and turn it into a object which I can use on the admin panel.
If that doesn't work, can I easily use parts of the functionality such as
the upload form?
Any thoughts or suggestions to save myself from wasting countless hours?
