    The plugin isn’t built to handle the displaying of the post types or taxonomies that are created with it, it is just meant to handle the registration of them and make them available to use.

    That said, it is possible to create a shortcode for them or display them in a dropdown, it’s just probably going to be more roll your own solution.

    If you’re a coder at all, hopefully this will help get you on your way:


    Thanks for coming back to me.

    Unfortunately my coding skills are very limited

    Do you know of anything else that might help, basically,

    I want to be able to create posts with extra fields author, date, company etc.
    When I publish these posts i want to be able to display those fields on the post.
    Then I want to be able to create a page with different drop down menus of those fields ( a menu with authors and a separate menu with company for example).

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    So I have a better picture, what is supposed to happen when people click on these dropdowns? Go to a certain post/page associated with it? collect data to submit to something in the end? Are these supposed to be related to a specific post or page?

    Author and date are already part of each post so that won’t be hard to query for at all. “Company” can be post meta data. Not sure what other fields you wanted.

    HI michael,

    Yes i want the fields to be related to a post.

    Pretty much the same as the category functionality. This could be done with the category option but to have more than one drop down menu every time you add a category that you don’t want in the other menus you would have to exclude it every time.

    Still not completely sure what you want these dropdowns to do and how closely they’re related. It’d help me a lot to get as much detail on workflow as possible from both the administrator side as well as intended user side. So perhaps walk me through from each point of view what you want/need to happen with what content/user interface.

    Definitely not sounding like a simple drop-in of code. It’s something that needs planned out. Also it’s not directly related to the plugin itself, but I feel like doing what I can anyway.

    What you problably need is a form. There are some free form plugins here on but if your programming skills are not so well I would suggest you go for a premium form plugin like Gravitar of Formidable. Combined with this fine Custom Post Type UI plugin you are able to build whatever you like.

    Hi Michael, Sorry didnt I come back to you i ended up getting the plugin to work really well with

    Thanks anyway

    Not a problem at all, I’m glad you managed to find a solution at all. Hope everything works out for you!
