Support » Plugin: Toolset Types - Custom Post Types, Custom Fields and Taxonomies » extremely difficult to use without buying extra services

  • Not useful plugin at free mode at my beginner WP level. Installed it, managed to create CPT. Found a page where they showed an example of summary page. But this was flawed. This plugin website said it was possible to create own php without buying their services but I did not find anywhere any support material to do so. Everywhere they encourage to buy their services. Deleted the plugin.

    Hello @kietygory

    I apologise your experience with Types has not been satisfying.

    Let me explain how Types works.

    With Types you can create Custom Types (Posts, Fields, Taxonomies) wihtout using PHP.
    Normally, in WordPress, you will need to register them in PHP using code.

    With Types you can do that all from the WP Admin area.

    Then, when you want to display the content you created, you can either fall back to your Theme’s Templates (for Post Types), and use the Types ShortCodes to display Fields, in the Post’s Bodies.

    Now, if you need custom Templates, and use only Types, the solution is to create your own Custom PHP Templates (which is done following the WP DOC), and in there, you use the Types API to display the Fields.

    The Paid Plugins (Toolset), they are made to also avoid PHP in this last case.
    But they are not needed, to create custom content.
    They are there to display it.

    This part (the display) is therefore either done with the Types ShortCodes, with the API, or with the paid Plugins.

    I do hope this information helped to create your desired Templates.

    “buy Toolset “!!!

    Like others already said – not much for free.
