Post Updated Messages


Changes the default “Post updated” message to reflect the actual post type. It uses the labels set when a
post type is registered to display “My Post Type updated”.

What post types use the custom messages?

By default, all custom post types will use the custom messages. Posts and pages will use their default messages.

Can I exclude a post type from custom messages?

Sure. You can add your post type slug to the pum_post_types_nofilter filter to use the default ‘post’ messages.

Can I change a message?

Yep. Use the pum_post_messages filter to change the action words (e.g. “updated”, “published”), or pum_post_bulk_messages filter for the bulk actions (e.g “permanently deleted”, “moved to the Trash” ).

Can I change the post type name?

C’mon, you gotta do some work yourself! (hint: read the inline docs)
