Custom Post Type UI
[resolved] Warning: don't edit multiple items at a time (3 posts)

    Just a quick warning to everyone: if you have multiple post types/taxonomies, be sure to only edit one item at a time. Because of how the Custom Post Type UI plugin stores it's data (serialized array), having two tabs/windows open to edit multiple items at a time can cause the data to get out of sync, which results in a messed-up CPT definition.

    If your post types are messed up as a result of this, the only real option to restore them is to use a database backup similar to this post.

    Just a note to add to this. 0.9 hopes to rid itself of this issue through named arrays using the CPT slug instead of indexed arrays.

    Great to hear. Thanks for the hard work!
