Still No Custom Post Types Support?? (3 posts)

    Dear Author We love the plugin, but why still no developments with this problem?

    Having a headache trying to get my custom post types to work hence so they show up in the Post types considered.

    There has been a great demand for custom post type support since the release of this plugin and still no developments? I see so many concerns about this problem in the support forum.

    The plugin is listed as one of the best "Related Contents" plugin yet without this simple functionality. How?

    I have read many postings regarding this problem and the author seems to be directing Users to the readme doc which suggests setting 'yarpp_support' => true in the register_post_type() function. It was also confirmed that using the register_post_type wont overwrite already created post types. So how can this be a feasible solution? I mean in this day and time, hardly anyone creates custom post types by manually coding functions.php there are CPT plugins that do this.

    I have about 34+ custom post types... I've explicitly tried to overwrite their yarpp_support vaules. I know i've done all I need to, but the plugin still is not picking up my custom post type.

    Is there no custom post type creator plugin that allows the yarpp_support attribute to be seen and configured? If I am understanding the author correctly if I have already defined custom post types and don't seem to be able to get the custom post types 'yarpp_support' value overwritten, then I wont be able to use the custom post types with YARPP? Is this rather not a limitation to the plugin??

    There has been suggestions from the author for Users to approach the CPT plugin developers to allow the configuration of yarpp_support. Really?? :/

    I have been monitoring the developments of the plugin & have to say its a little disappointing that the author doesn't see the urgent need for this feature.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    We understand the suggested solution is to set the 'yarpp_support' attribute to 'true' when registering custom post types. But is it not evident that this solution is not ideal for everyone?

    I'm I wrong when I say Custom Post Types are barely defined explicitly by coding the functions.php anymore? That there are plugins that do a better job at this for Admins? Further more the YARPP plugin doesn't even allow the overwriting of already registered custom post types; so how is explicitly registering the custom post types even a solution? Its merely just a workaround that 'might' work, hence clearly only works for some.

    Dear Author.. great plugin, but please revise your suggested solution for custom post types.

    Thanks

    Dear author,
    I am sorry to tell you that since your great plugin won't work with plugin generated CPT, I had to uninstall it and find another one :
