Excellent plugin.

The only issue I ran into was when I moved a site from a development location to production. The plugin broke. But it was easily reinstalled.

This plugin fills a vital need for a modern CMS.

I have sopped searching when I found this one...

Custom types and custom fields are aspects of WordPress where we all end up digging deeper and deeper sooner or later. Me myself was trying to find custom fields that could come up with data loaded from database especially dropdowns and guess what? I've found none but this one and I am really in love with it :D
Isn't this cute? Directly from DB to our <select> options?

SELECT name,term_id FROM wp_terms WHERE term_id IN (SELECT wp_term_taxonomy.term_id FROM wp_term_taxonomy WHERE wp_term_taxonomy.taxonomy="carrera")

Great job guys, and nice documentation.

Great, but incomplete

Works well, gives good help on creating templates, seems stable despite a recent upgrade glitch.

Only gets 4 stars because custom content usually needs separate taxonomy and so another separate plugin in needed just to add tags/categories.

Becoming concerned

I used to give this a full, glowing 5 star review - I use it on a lot of sites, and it is genuinely one of the easiest, most feature-rich plugins for adding custom post types and custom fields.

However, I am becoming increasingly concerned about the future of CCTM. It hasn't been updated for almost a year now, and is starting to gather quite a few bugs brought about through changes to WP that they haven't kept up with, even though the fixes are, on the whole, simple to do and widely known on this support forum and their own.

It's getting to the stage now that, when I begin a new project, I wonder if I should invest even more time in a plugin that (possibly, but I sincerely hope not) is not going to be kept updated.

Very flexible plugin and easy to incorporate CCTM tags into your theme.
Works with Simple Taxonomy plugin, Co-Authors Plus plugin, Multi-Column Taxonomy List plugin, and Expand and Collapse Funk plugin. Does not slow down site load time either.

Excellent documentation.

Awesome

complaint above about not working with taxonomy is incorrect, works off of standard categories & tags - nothing but positives from me!

It has solved me quite a few problems in difficult situations. It's a must! Once you get the hang of it, it becomes part of any project you undertake: you just look at handling data in wordpress as a natural thing.
