GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools
[resolved] Can't seem to rename custom post type (4 posts)

    Hello. I'm trying out GD Custom Post and Taxonomies Tools at the recommendation of http://www.johnoverall.com/, having used the Custom Post Type UI http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/ for a while. It seems a nice bit of kit, but I've noticed that if I create a custom post type, I can't seem to rename it if I make a mistake.

    For example, I creat a CPT called listing, but then go back to change it to listings. The Name field is greyed out and I can't make any changes. Is this a bug?

    Thanks.

    No it's not a bug, name can't be changed. When you create custom post type, name you give to it is used to save posts into the database. If you rename it, posts will not be visible.

    Pro version of the plugin has much more advanced post type editor, and one of the things it can do is to check if the name is used in the database already. If it was not used to create posts, it will allow you to change it.

    For Lite right now, if you have just created it and made a mistake, you must delete old one, but if you made posts already, you must change the database also.
