Support » Plugin: Custom Post Type UI » Shortcodes for Custom Templates

    Does this plugin or the Extended create shortcodes for Post Types & Taxonomies

    E.G: taxonomy called (MANUFACTURER) (MAKE) and shortcode example: [xxx-xxxx=123]

    Using Elementor pagebuilder allows for Shortcodes.
    If I were making a Car Dealer Site and had Post Type (Vehicle Listings) & Taxonomies like below:

    Tax: MAKE
    Tax: MODEL
    Tax: GEARS
    Tax: FUEL
    Tax: MILES
    Tax: COLOR etc…,

    each Post Type & Taxonomy would have their own code, maybe something similar like this example shortcode:

    This way we could build out out own custom Elementor Template using Shortcodes..

    Another Example:

    Custom Post Type UI itself doesn’t make any shortcodes at all.

    Extended has its own shortcode generator modal popup based on some items from classic editor UI that gets used to collect attributes that are turned into WP_Query arguments. We have some out-of-box layouts that can be chosen to be used with the data you specify to query for. For a more high-ish level explanation of this functionality, consider this. Custom Post Type UI is UI for selecting post type/taxonomy registration arguments. CPTUI-Extended’s primary functionality is UI for selecting some arguments for WP_Query calls and loading a template to display the results with, and placed using shortcodes 😀

    You can see a quick demo of available layouts over at
