Populate dropdown with custom post type post name by author

    Hi,

    I am using this code on this page http://pastie.org/1617402 to popluate a drop down with post titles from a custom post type called events. It is pulling in the 5 most recent titles ok. I need a few options though - how can it pull all the posts, not just 5. And, I have another form where logged in users can can submit that form, which creates the posts in the custom post type events. So, I need this dropdown to only show the post titles that they have created. Right now, the drop down is showing ALL events created by everyone - how can I populate it so its only showing posts that they have created?

    Thanks

    Rob

  2. By default get_posts gets 5 posts.

    By adding numberposts = -1, you will get all.

    $posts = get_posts("post_type=$post_type&numberposts=-1");
