    Hi ironfish2,

    I apologize, but I’m not sure I understand how the issue discussed in the other thread you shared relates to WPForms. Could you please share more details about the issue you’re seeing?



    I am really sorry but I linked to the wrong issue.

    Here is the correct issue:

    Sorry I was not clear.

    All in One SEO Pack has a section where you can select which custom post types to apply SEO to.

    With WPForms Lite activated, the list shows as:

    Posts Pages Media oEmbed Responses Posts WPForms Logs Field Groups Fields PayPal IPN Listings Google Font Controls Posts

    So the Posts post type is listed three times.

    When WPForms Lite is deactivated, the list shows Posts only one time.

    So it seems to me that WPForms Lite is creating/adding two more Posts post types when it is activated. Of course, there can only be one.

    I can see that WPForms Lite is creating a custom post type called WPForms, and so the plugin may also be creating other custom post types but incorrectly naming them as Posts…..

    WPForms uses a few “internal” post types. For example Forms are stored in a custom post types.

    These custom post types have public set to false, which in most cases hides them from showing up in other plugins. Since these post types are for internal use only, they do not have a label defined and are only referenced by their slug (eg wpforms for our forms post type).

    What is happening here is All in One SEO is choosing to ignore the public post type setting and is displaying *all* post types on the site – even the ones that have public disabled and are meant for internal use only (The default method to look up post types that a site has excludes private post types by default, see Since we do not provide labels to our internal post type, AIOSEO falls back to calling theme ‘Posts’.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Hi Jared,

    Thanks very much for your quick and concise support.

    If possible, please consider – give your private posts types a suitable descriptive name, so that they do not show up as “Posts”.

    In any case your support has been appreciated.

    Will do. I’ve made a note to define a label in the next update 🙂
