  • Can custom post types be added using a CSV or XML file?

    For example, I would allow my client to upload a CSV or XML file which would include the necessary attributes/files and values, and it would automatically create a new custom post and taxonomy. Is that possible?

    NOTE: I don’t want to add posts in a custom post type. Rather, I want to add custom post types itself.

  • To download something using CSV you should go to Advanced Settings -> Bulk Upload. There you can do upload/export of .csv files.
    In case your theme doesn’t allow to do it, try to use the WP All Import Plugin, which is developed exactly for such needs.

    If it’s not possible to do it via CSV or XML, I need it to be done via admin UI. I mean, I need admins to be able to create custom posts & texonomies with meta boxes, without editing any code. So, need an admin UI or ability to do it via CSV/XML file.

    In short, I need a way for someone unfamiliar with coding to be able to create custom posts, taxonomies and metaboxes.

    (I can write plugin, if given appropriate hints.)
