Previously, there was the edit_form_advanced hook (or edit_page_form for pages), which appeared between the normal and advanced sections of metaboxes below the editor. Now you’ll be able to use edit_form_after_title and edit_form_after_editor, both of which are available even if the post type doesn’t support the title or editor.
