Custom Post Type UI
[resolved] [FEATURE REQUEST] Adding CPT's to dedicated pages (2 posts)

    So creating a CPT with the plugin makes it stupid-easy for anyone to do it and cuts a lot of time out of manually editing functions.php to create one.

    Now, creating the loop to display all this on a custom template can be a pain.

    Is there any way you can code in a point where they have the option (a simple check box) to create a tag [CPT_POST_TYPE] where POST_TYPE was whatever they named their CPT? That way, it's as simple as creating a new page (or text widget) and pasting [CPT_POST_TYPE] as the only thing on that page and they can instantly have all their custom posts listed.

    Or, have a selector for what page to display it on like what is found under Settings -> Reading where it allocates an already created page with a selector.

    Given the sheer amount of ways one could and would want to display their custom post type data, I don't feel that this is a very feasible thing for us to try and handle. Not to mention the infinite amount of options we'd need to accommodate for between ways to query for the post data. It kind of ends up being one of those things better left to the discretion of the person/developer who's implementing. I'm never going to be afraid to help someone wanting to display their CPT data, but I'd be asking questions and helping decide the best step forward for their use case.

    That said, I think it's best to do this part and this part as well as we can, which is just getting the post types and taxonomies registered/ready to use.
