Custom Post Type UI

Description

Custom Post Type UI provides an easy to use interface for registering and managing custom post types and taxonomies for your website.

Custom Post Type UI Extended

CPTUI helps create custom content types, but displaying that content can be a whole new challenge. We created Custom Post Type UI Extended to help with displaying your crafted content. View our Layouts page to see available layout examples with Custom Post Type UI Extended.

Beginning with version 1.7.0, Custom Post Type UI Extended has properly moved in to the Block editor experience and is working to get all the layouts available in the new “Custom Post Type UI Block”. It’s now even easier to start showing your content with the existing and future layouts available with Custom Post Type UI Extended.

Pluginize was launched in 2016 by WebDevStudios to promote, support, and house all of their WordPress products. Pluginize is not only creating new products for WordPress, like CPTUI Extended, but also provides ongoing support and development for WordPress community favorites like CMB2 and more.

Plugin development

Custom Post Type UI development is managed on GitHub, with official releases published on WordPress.org. The GitHub repo can be found at https://github.com/WebDevStudios/custom-post-type-ui. Please use the WordPress.org support tab for potential bugs, issues, or enhancement ideas.

This plugin is really useful as it makes creating custom posts way more simpler than coding your own functions in php. It also means that the custom posts are independant of themes so you can change theme without losing the post. And you can easily edit setting on your custom post any time. It has all the options + custom taxonies to create whatever type of post you need. Works with gutenberg editor, can easily change icons and can export posts if you need to move them. On top of that, the support is amazing. I found a bug with the export option and it was fixed the next day with a detailed explaination of the problem. Couldn't ask for more! This has made my life so much easier, I recommend to any developers who want to work with custom posts.

Works well, but it's missing a number of CPT options: rest_namespace, capabilities, map_meta_cap, register_meta_box_cb, rewrite[feeds, pages, ep_mask], template, and template_lock. I realize these are not common, but it's a drag when you go to create your third CPT and realize you need to find a different solution that will accommodate one of the missing options. It's no good to have a few registered in CPTUI and a few by hand.

Thx for this great plugin! It fills a great gap, that Wordpress has since of its birth. Works like a charm and is not difficult to understand. While it doesn't offer the ability to add category images, I still consider it a must-have plugin for many professional WP installations.

I purchased the Custom Post Type UI Extended plugin and used the Grid with Overlay display option. I wanted it to look like the example on their website's example layouts page, but mine came out with 2 images across and they are collapsed to about 30 pixels tall. There are no settings to control number of posts per row or the display height and there is no documentation as to how any of this could be configured. Their website makes it appear to be one of the built-in optional layouts. It looks like I will have to create a custom template.
