This plugin does do as it says. However, it causes custom post type pages to be spoofed as real pages. This means they now return true to is_page() calls, while they are not pages and this can cause problems. We have had trouble with it messing up the WPML plugin and a some custom plugins that use is_page().
I am not saying not to use this plugin, just be warned the danger.
Plugin works great! Could you please update it though so that you no longer have the "2 year since last update" warning message? Some people find that scary :)
Thanks Hiroaki for this plugin.
Thanks for this plugin. It works exactly as I expected, made my day. I wanted to offer premium content on my website and wanted it to look different from default templates without having to change the whole blog's one.
What i need! Gracias...
Contrary to previous comments by Drew Jaynes, this plugin appears to allow post meta to work still on the front end in the testing I have done.
No complaints here!
Different as custom post type template in that you don't need to create cpt templates, just use the page templates.
I was so happy to find this, and even happier that it worked so easily and so well. Excellent plugin - many thanks to the developer.
I tried the other popular Custom Post Template plugin but had to go through various loops to create a custom template for posts. I wanted a full width template for my Twenty Twelve theme.
With 20-12 there's already a full width template and I don't need to re-create it and then copy it to another directory. Well I tried that and thought there must be an easier way.
And I found this plugin. Easy as pie. It just add the page templates to posts. You just need to go to Settings and activate where you want it. I did not do this initially as I thought I will see the options while creating a post.
Now that I have set the settings it shows for each post and I can choose a template. Love it. Just did what I wanted with no loops.
Thanks buddy. You did a great job.
