Embed a form in Create Article page

Post by tzvishmuel » Wed Feb 07, 2018 9:26 pm

We have a special group on our site that can only create articles in one category. We want to input additional information that will be stored in a custom table ONLY for this category. I am looking for a way to accomplish this without having to create the entire thing from scratch. (I expect to have to do the input form for the additional fields myself.)

I've looked at a number of CCKs in the extensions but haven't found anything that works; especially because we want the full TinyMCE editor, not just a text area, and we would prefer the article portion be stored along with the regular content, not in a separate table.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
