HMG How-To Tips


The Haley Marketing How-To Tips plugin creates a Custom Post Type for managing a knowledge base section of your site. It adds a custom taxonomy and two widgets to display the custom taxonomy list and a Recent Tips sidebar.

The post type and taxonomy labels can be customized from the admin panel.


  1. Upload the hmg-how-to-tips directory (including all files within) to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


I just upgraded and my posts are gone! Now what?

No problem! Go to the How-To Tips option page under the Haley Marketing menu. In the Menu Label (Plural) field enter ‘howtotips’. Save. All your posts will magically return. Now you can change the Menu Label (Plural) setting to whatever you like and your posts will stay.
