CPT-onomies: Using Custom Post Types as Taxonomies
Best CPT Plugin, Hands Down (6 posts)

    Not only does it add one a most useful functionality for the advanced WP developer, this plugin also provides a beautiful interface for creating a CPT.

    A couple of suggestions to make it 6 Star: :)

    1) An option to click a button to have javascript autopopulate the Labels using the base name. For example, instead of the default "Edit Item"/"Edit Page" it would be nice for the system to calculate each value based on the initial CPT name. "New Album" "Edit Album" etc...

    2) Export PHP Code so we dont need to include the plugin to generate CPT and CPTonomy

    3) At least export XML or Serialized data so we can more easily recreate the fields and settings on other systems

    Thanks for this stellar plugin!

    Hi! Thanks for the awesome review! I'm glad you're enjoying CPT-onomies as much as I enjoy developing it!

    And thanks for the notes! These are definitely some great ideas! I have already copied them over to my notes to see what I can do for future versions. Part of #2 is already up and running, though. Learn more about programmatically registering your CPT-onomies using register_cpt_onomy().

    I know how to use register_cpt_onomy()... :)

    The point is if I already created something with the plugin, it could generate the PHP for me to paste into my code...

    Thanks again.

    Oh, well, just so you know, while you can register a custom post type without the plugin (CPT-onomies just provides a helpful interface. Custom Post Types are default WordPress functionality.), you can't generate a CPT-onomy without activating the plugin.

    The functionality that CPT-onomies provides is something that I created/developed and the programming that makes this functionality possible exists solely in the plugin. You don't need to use the interface to register CPT-onomies, as you've already discovered with register_cpt_onomy(), but the plugin does have to be activated.

    You especially don't need the interface to register a custom post type, just use register_post_type(). Just make sure your custom post type is registered before you register it’s CPT-onomy.

    Hope this helps! Thanks!

    My point is simply that sometimes I want to use a UI to generate CPT (there are many plugins for this, many even generate the PHP export). Especially if it auto calculates the labels, etc.

    This way I can play with all the settings until I get it right in terms of all the CPT options before moving to code. UI is more fun...

    I think the UI here is the sleekest for this function (besides the -onomy bonus) and I am simply hoping you consider the idea of PHP export. :)
