    Is it possible to add a CPT inside of another CPT menu?

    I mean..

    I have CPT “A” with many taxonomies..

    I’d like to create another CPT and instead of having a parent menu in the nav bar I’d like to add this new CPT under the CPT “A” options in the nav bar not in the post

  • I don’t know what you mean by “options in the nav bar”.
    Are you using a plugin to create the CPT? Does the plugin create the nav bar?

    When you create a WordPress menu, you can put whatever you want in it, in any order or nesting.
    But it sounds like a confusion of post type and taxonomy. Post types contain content. Taxonomies are labels to organize the content.

    Hi Joy,

    Let me explain. Anytime I create a new CPT it adds a new item to the navigation bar. If I create a taxonomy I can set that taxonomy to a Post Type and it will be added as a child item under the post type.

    What I am trying to say is: I want to add a different post type under a specific post type so instead of having a new menu item this new post type item would be added under whatever Post Type I want.

    Now I have:

    Post Type A
    Tax 1
    Tax 2

    Post Type B
    Tax 1
    Tax 2

    I want…

    Post Type A
    Tax 1
    Tax 2
    Post Type B

    Below is the Post Type B code:

    function pt_coupons(){
              'labels' => array('name' => __('SS Coupons'), 'singular_name' => __('SS Coupons')),
                'public' => false,
               'publicly_queryable' => false,
               'has_archive' => false,
               'with_front' => false,
               'exclude_from_search' => true, 
               'rewrite' => false,
               'show_in_nav_menus' => false,
               'show_ui' => true,
               'supports' => array('title'),

    I don’t see why you would want that, but go to and read carefully the description of the ‘show_in_menu’ parameter.
