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.

Ultimate Post Types


Ultimate Post Types provides an easy interface for custom Post Types and Taxonomies management through the admin. It works fully with the WordPress post type/taxonomy API and covers the functionality from creating a post type, through adding taxonomies and custom fields, to the template which the post type uses.

It is a logical extension of the Ultimate Fields plugin and will not work if the latter is not installed.

Post Types & Taxonomies

You can create unlimited custom post types and custom taxonomies and set up every one of their details, as it would be possible through code.

Custom Fields

When creating a post type or taxonomy, you can directly assign all of Ultimate Fields’ custom fields!


With Ultimate Post Types you can select which template from the active theme should the post type use for it’s singular pages.

Additionally, you can define content that will appear before and after the standard content of the post type. That content may include custom fields, associated with the post type. This way you can create a custom template for your custom post type and display custom fields accordingly, without needing to add them to each separate post.


You can export post types and taxonomies as stand-alone PHP code! When you add the code to your theme or plugin, the code
is self-sustaining and does not need Ultimate Post Types to be installed.

You would only need Ultimate Fields or Ultimate Fields Premium in order to enable custom fields.

This version brings two changes:

  1. Rewrite rules are now flushed when a new post type or taxonomy is created. No more 404 errors.
  2. Post Types & Taxonomies can be exported to PHP code now!
