Support » Plugin: Custom Content Type Manager » [Plugin: Custom Content Type Manager] can i create a new post type with CCTM once and use it at all

  • I’m using this plugin….it’s really good, easy to use.

    i am usign wordpress as a CMS, which enabled multi-sites.

    after i created a new post type with CCTM on main site, i can’t find it on the child sites.users can’t not use the new type to post their article.
    It seems that i have to repeat the creating new type precess again and again for all children sites.

    So the question is, can i create a new post type with CCTM once and set it as a default to all children sites in the network?

    i thought the export and import function is a way to reduce the repeat creating work as much as possible. though i am not sure my understanding is right.

    i tried to export the main site definition and downloaded the *.cctm.json file and got an error message saying the uploaded format is not correct when i tried to import on a child site.

    then…i don’t what else i can do any body know other custom plugin can match my demand? or any one give me a clue or help on a right way to use this one?
    thanks in advance:)

    I need a couple details here: first and foremost, I need to know the EXACT steps you are taking to setup multiple sites. I haven’t tested the plugin using multi-sites, but I need to know exactly how you are trying to do this.

    Secondly, I need to know exact details of how you are trying import and export the .cctm.json file — version 0.9.3 and before used a different format for the definition files, so if you are trying to import a 0.9.3 definition file on a 0.9.4 site, it won’t work.

    So please, file a bug in the bug tracker, and include as much information as possible.


    the steps to enable multi-site:
    1,insert below into wp-config.php;
    define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);
    2,create a folder named “blogs.dir” in /wp-content/blogs.dir;
    3,copy codes in tools-network menu to wp-config.php and .htaccess file;
    i think you can easily find more detail steps info by google;

    i exported .cctm.json from V0.9.3.3 and imported to another V0.9.3.3, failed;
    haven’t try V0.9.4.2 yet….but i guess the same….it should not be related to version…..unless it’s a issue you have know before V0.9.4.2 and you fixed it with plan.

    Great! Please put this in the bug tracker so I see it when I sit down to work on bugs and features. Thanks!

    The data structure is completely related to the version — huge changes occurred between 0.9.3 and 0.9.4 — I tested importing and exporting with the new version. Please include the version number and server details when you file the bug.

    hi….i just exported from version and tried to imported at a children site also with version…..still fail…

    wish below info helpful to you:

    Please correct the following errors:

    The uploaded file is not in the correct format.

    Please, put this in the bug-tracker. It really helps me out. I don’t groom the forums for bug reports when it comes time to work on the plugin. I get a lot of emails and notes about this plugin every day, and all of that time is time I would normally spend on my paying clients and the other deadlines I have, so if you can help me stay organized and post this in the bug tracker, it saves me a lot of time and it helps ensure that myself and others can search past issues and any related notes. Thanks.

    ok….submitted…as you wish
