Ov3rfly, if you could contribute your thoughts over at this issue, that’d be greatly appreciated.
I’m not super familiar with this part myself, so I’m kind of relying on those who are to offer suggestions/pointers.
Honestly, this is one that I was originally leaving out, but it got requested so I did some initial work on it.
I’m not against reversing what work I did do, and offer a hook around the post type arguments right before registering, so that those who know what they’re doing with it could add it themselves as necessary.
As aebs has explained exactly the same above problem already, you could add a link to this thread to github, that should be sufficient.
Just making sure i have enough information to do it right
