What Happens When De-activated? (4 posts)

    I'm always worried about adding too much plugin overhead, thus slowing my page load speed. So I'm naturally wondering what happens if I create a Custom Post Type and then disable this plugin. Does the CPT remain functional, or does it go poof (if it disappears, then it seems like hard-coding is the only safe way to go).

    My idea is that I would enable the plugin when I need to create or edit CPTs, and then disable it afterwards to lower plugin overhead.

    Why don't you try it?

    I've tried it, and disappointingly it's the latter - the custom post types disappear. Not quite sure what the plugin is doing under the hood, would have thought if it was registering them properly with wordpress they'd reamin. Deactivating isn't doing any kind of clean-up, because as soon as you reactivate, previously created CPTs are visible again.

    Can't it be exported into a stand-alone plugin? If not, that should be a feature. I'd love to develop custom post-types on my development site then export them to live sites once they've been debugged/etc.

    These are not "real" taxonomies or custom post types, unfortunately. Any other plugin installed which modifies custom post types either conflicts with this one (ie, causes types to stop working) or is completely ignored. I like the ease of this plugin, but just today got screwed by this unexpected aspect (I guess I should have looked under the hood to see what was really going on)--so am going to have to take "Types" out of my toolbox. If I write a plugin to convert "Types" custom data to "real" WP data, I'll post it on WP. (Don't hold your breath!)
