Custom Content Type Manager
Foreign post types (2 posts)

    Hi, so previously I've been creating custom post types by hand using the register_post_type function. All sweet.

    I'm now considering switching over to using Custom Content Type Manager (mainly for the ease of managing custom fields etc) and on the site where I've still got some manually created CPT's, I'm reassured to see that this plugin detects my existing CPT's.

    However, it calls them "Foreign post-types" and when I click to try and add custom fields etc, the plugin comes back saying "Invalid post type".

    So what extra does the CCTM plugin do which manually created CPT code doesn't do? I'm just concerned about being locked into using anyone plugin, should this plugin no longer be supported in the future and/or I need to go back to coding stuff by hand again?

    Thanks

    Re the functionality: lots of stuff. WP has many warts here. The most obvious thing is the standardizing of custom fields and offering various field types since WP's implementation is so simplistic as to be unusable. See the wiki for more info on functionality etc. https://code.google.com/p/wordpress-custom-content-type-manager/

    Re the fields: sounds like a bug: you should be able to add custom fields to foreign post types -- there was a feature request maybe 6 or 10 months ago about that specifically. Please file a bug report in the bug tracker and I'll address it as soon as I'm able.
