Support » Plugin: Custom Post Type UI » Translation of Custom Post Types

  • Resolved caspersjan


    Hello, I found your plugin and was delighted by the ease with which it allows me to create Custom Post Types. I used to have everything convoluted in Posts, awkwardly separated with categories and tags. Now in one fell swoop all is a picture of clarity. Thank you for creating and maintaining Custom Post Types UI!
    There is one small hitch: I have to translate the posts and use WordPress Multilingual. In the normal posts, I have an option to add the translations in the backend editor – each post has a little button to bring up a twin for translation. In the custom post types I have created, this option is not there. Please excuse me if this question is out of place, I know that it is not your responsibility to guarantee seamless cross-application functioning for thousands of plugins… But if you have a notion, if there is some kind of setting I have overlooked I’d be most grateful for your feedback.
    Yours faithfully, Jan.

    I’m wagering that the WPML plugin, or whichever one you’re using, doesn’t know about your CPT to add its metaboxes to. The primary purpose of our plugin, and what I think it does well, is get the CPT or taxonomies registered and available to use. Getting those integrated with the rest of your site/site is outside of our capabilities.

    Dear Michael, thank you very much for your answer, and for taking the time to think about something that is really more my concern than yours. Your comments are very helpful – now I’ll know what say to the WPML people. I have just started to use your plugin and it did its real job perfectly. I see that it is very popular indeed, as is WPML (at least in the specific multilingual context). Perhaps they’ll be able to fix it so it recognizes the new custom post types. Once again, thank your for your kind assistance and for writing and maintaining this plugin. Yours faithfully, Jan.
