Support for Custom Post Types? (13 posts)

    I'm trying to piece together a support ticket, AKA help desk, system that allows users to email support@ourdomain.com to get support but in a way that creates the posts in something like BBPress instead. Then they can continue to reply by email as they receive notifications or work directly in the forum.

    Is supporting Custom Post Types for use like this something planned for this Plugin?

    Thank you!

    This is on the list for the next (currently in-progress) version, yes! https://github.com/codebykat/wp-post-by-email/issues/15

    There's a PR already done that gets us most of the way there, I think, but needs some testing before it can be merged in. https://github.com/codebykat/wp-post-by-email/pull/16

    Oh, whoops, I misremembered -- that PR (pull request) is for post *formats*, not post types. Apologies for the confusion, I was triaging a bunch of issues/support requests and confused myself.

    So, it's on the list for the upcoming version, but I haven't gotten there yet. I would definitely appreciate beta testing once I do -- I'm in the midst of something else at the moment, but I will answer your email within a couple of days and we can talk about the schedule. I can also give you instructions on how to install and test the beta version of the plugin.

    Curious -- has this been made available? Seems like a great feature which we would need before using.

    Hi JNZ31,

    Except that doesnt have any hooks to accept the content via EMAIL, does it?

    @ jnz31 actually that Plugin isn't what this post is about. This post is about emailing content not uploading it on the front end.

    And no progress has been made on this yet, but it looks like development may begin within 45 days. My staff and I have decided to hire Kat or another developer to create it but we have to raise the funds first - which we believe will arrive in about 6 weeks.

    I await this feature with bated breath :-)

    Before WordPress 3.7, the publish_phone hook allowed you to override the default Post post-type for your own custom post-type. (Though I hadn't tested it fully.)

    We just got funding for this so this project is on! Should have a beta in about 30 days.
