Really takes custom post types and taxonomies to the next level!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Custom post types are really powerful, but creating them by hand is quite tedious. This plugin makes that process quick and painless.

But it doesn't stop there. Where it truly shines is in turning those post types into taxonomies. Using posts you just created act as categories/tags for other stuff? That's WordPress on steroids.

Thanks, and keep up this great work.

Best CPT Plugin, Hands Down
By , for WP 3.5.1

Not only does it add one a most useful functionality for the advanced WP developer, this plugin also provides a beautiful interface for creating a CPT.

A couple of suggestions to make it 6 Star: :)

1) An option to click a button to have javascript autopopulate the Labels using the base name. For example, instead of the default "Edit Item"/"Edit Page" it would be nice for the system to calculate each value based on the initial CPT name. "New Album" "Edit Album" etc...

2) Export PHP Code so we dont need to include the plugin to generate CPT and CPTonomy

3) At least export XML or Serialized data so we can more easily recreate the fields and settings on other systems

Thanks for this stellar plugin!

Exactly what I needed
By , for WP 3.5.1

Perfect for creating a relation between my Employee custom post type and my Location custom post type.

Easy to use tool for building complex content structures
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin makes it trivially easy to create powerful and complex content structures in WordPress. Relationships between pieces of content become highly flexible and powerful, and a WordPress install can be transformed into a fully customized CMS for a huge variety of use cases without requiring any code.

Very impressive work, and tremendously high quality and usability for being free! I would in fact recommend that Rachel Carden consider making it a paid plugin to ensure she is able to continue to develop and support it into the future.

I have used this plugin for a year now in different projects. I have to say, that this is one of the best CPT plugins out there at the moment, specially for developers who need to create simple and intuitive UI's and complex relations with the content.

This plugin takes WordPress developing to another level!

Nicely done !

Great work...

By , for WP 3.4.2

It's my first time using this plugin.

I must say... It made possible for "non coders" like me to create CPT in less than a minute.


Great little plugin!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Works fine in WP 3.4.2, even in MultiSite.

I've coded Custom Post Types by hand and also used other CPT plugins. This is a good plugin which will get you started making Custom Post Types of your own in no time.

Rachel has done a fine job of taking all of the work out of it and just leaving the creative side to your imagination.

Thanks Rachel!


Has been working perfectly, Rachel is a clever girl
By , for WP 3.4.2

I've been using this plugin in a multisite, where I define the Custom Post Types and cptonomies in the functions.php of a parent theme. All child themes inherit the CPTs and cptonomies nicely. Things have been working fine and Rachel has helped with good documentation and has been active in the forum. Amazing!
