[resolved] Creppy - NO explanation about HOW t (6 posts)

    I said it before, your plugin is a nightmare on Earth!
    There is NO intelligible explanation about the steps to follow to get those custom defined post types and taxonomies and fields to also DISPLAY on a website!

    Little "detail" you have forgotten!?!?!
    Does your plugin already declare the newly defined type somewhere, or should we manually add that to functions.php?

    WHat about new templates to fit the newly defined custom types?

    I don't see the documentation mention it, but some images show that at the top of the edit area, next to the icons for add-an-image, is a "T" icon. Click on that, and it lets you select a shortcode to insert to display a custom field. I had no trouble creating a custom post type which requires the entry of an image and description, and then inserting the shortcodes in the post so the image and description were shown when the post was viewed. Yes, I could have just inserted the image and description in the post, but then I would have lost the enforcement of the fields being required -- and I'd be using Views to actually show the posts, which will contain the shortcode definitions. (There also is a checkbox to omit the editor panel in a custom post, which can change post creation into a fill-in-the-blanks activity.)

    The Views plugin adds a way to format and display groups of posts, such as showing the newest three posts in the "Android" category in a certain part of a page.

    I had to create an account just to comment on this.
    I've been using WordPress to create custom CMS websites for a couple months now (its my new job). The Types plugin has proven to be an essential tool in some of my websites, where the end user needs static custom field types in certain posts.

    I will concede that the documentation took some time to find and then understand, but you have seriously misjudged this plugin, and the versatility that it offers.

    Thank you for everyone who contributed to this thread. As it's not really a technical question, but more of a comment about our documentation, I'll mark it as resolved.

    Please note that we're taking documentation and usability very seriously. The top level documentation page in our site is:

    There's also a search feature, which might be a good option for finding specific information.
