    Hi Manoj,

    Custom post types are a way within WordPress to display something with a custom look and feel. Business Directory plugin uses CPT’s, but we don’t provide a way to add your own. That’s something you’d have to add by hacking the plugin or building something on your own. It’s not a small thing to do.

    okay thank you,

    I would also like to know one more tweaking, i need to know the work flow of the “submit a business listing”, since the new updated plugin is working around api, i am not able to locate the files. So it would be kind of you to tell where we can find the submit business listing related files.

    to be clear , i need to change the post type during submitting a listing..

    Hi Manoj,

    The files involved are fairly numerous and changing the workflow is a fairly large change–it’s not just a couple of files. The best thing I can suggest is to make yourself familiar with the codebase of the plugin, because changing files without understanding the larger context would probably result in in bad behavior in the plugin.

    If you change our post type during the submit of a listing, this will most likely break other parts of the plugin that are searching for posts specifically of that type (e.g. the widgets, the search screens) so this change needs to be considered in a larger context.

    i know, i have taken care of the other parts, i just need the submit listing post type to be changed to “my custom post type” instead of “wpbdp_listings”…. it would be very helpful if you could tell me where to change..

    I don’t know where off hand, if you search the codebase for that string (wpbdm_listing) you should find the relevant places, but this could completely break the plugin, as I mentioned above.

    okay cool
