This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP Products


This plugin is VERY simple. There are NO configuration options necessary.

This plugin adds a new Post Type. This plugin makes it SUPER easy to create Products (as a separate Post Type in WordPress). This is a very lightweight plugin (for now). In the future we may add some additional functionality for Product integrations w/ other plugins.

After installing this plugin, create a new Product (find menu item on the left in your Dashboard). Products are just like any other Post, except they have a different classification so that themes/plugins may identify Products and/or separate them from other Posts.

WP Products is Very Easy to Install

  1. Upload the /products folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress®.
  3. Create Products in WordPress® (see: Dashboard -› Products).


Who can manage Products in the Dashboard?

By default, only WordPress® Administrators can manage (i.e. create/edit/delete/manage) Products. Editors and Authors can create/edit/delete their own Products, but permissions are limited for Editors/Authors. If you would like to give other WordPress Roles the Capabilities required, please use a plugin like Enhanced Capability Manager.

Add the following Capabilities to the additional Roles that should be allowed to manage Products.

$caps = array

NOTE: There are also some WordPress filters integrated into the code for this plugin, which can make permissions easier to deal with in many cases. You can have a look at the source code and determine how to proceed on your own; if you choose this route.
