Custom Post Type Images

Upload and attach a 'featured' image to any registered custom post types and call it via shortcode or template tag in your theme.

  1. Upload cptImages directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the Custom Post Type Images plugin through the 'Plugins' page in WordPress
  3. Go to Tools > Manage Custom Post Type Images.
  4. To use, select an image for the custom post type and attach. You can then use the image in various ways:

As a shortcode. Put [cptImage] wherever you want the image to appear. Not that in this usage (without a parameter) it will only appear when you are on a single item of that custom post type OR in the archive page itself. To call any attached image, use [cptImage cpt="Custom Post Type Name"].

In PHP in your template. To retrieve the image url to a variable, use get_cptimage_image($optionalname, $echo) (you can use get_cptimage_image("Custom Post Type Name") to retrieve a specific post type image, or get_cptimage_image("Custom Post Type Name", true) to echo the url rather than retrieving it. To merely display the image, call cptimage_image("Custom Post type Name") or simply cptimage_image(). Not that if you do not pass a post type name it will only appear when you are on a single item of that custom post type OR in the archive page itself.

Please note, as with every plugin or theme modification, you should do a backup of your files beforehand. Although we've tested this across many installs, we are not responsible for anything it does to your system and do not guarantee support.
