Too spammy, not suitable for client sites, pushes you to buy things
By , for WP 4.2.2

A fellow developer used this plugin to speed up the build for a website. And I really wish he didn't.

This is not suitable for a client's website. There are many better solutions available.

Here's some complaints:

1) There is a "Help box" which is enabled for your custom post types by default. This help box is actually just an advertisement for pro features. Terribly mislabelled, and had our client quite confused as he was trying to modify something on the front end, and that advertisement was telling him to get some other plugin to do so. Luckily you can turn this off, but this really shouldn't be allowed on wordpress.org plugins.

2) There's a lot of out-of-place links, like under the list of custom fields. It's just ugly and monstrous, and could easily be placed into the "Help" tab in the top right.

3) After an update, there is a message that says verbatim: "Types settings that were saved with the older version of Types may not import all the data." This is really off-putting, even if it doesn't affect me. I don't want to lose data, and I've lost my faith in this plugin because of this verbiage. Wow.

4) The menus are very wordy and redundant. You have "Custom Post Types" and "Custom Taxonomies" and "Custom Fields" and "Custom Field Controls". I get it, they are custom. Why not just remove the word Custom? The Types menu is the longest one on our website's dashboard, and it really doesn't need to be.

I problem in child product

Overall the plugin is really useful. But I got one problem.
I had add 'Children' in a parent. Both the parent and child have featured image. I am not able to set the featured image of the parent.

Please check on.

Best Custom Post Types Plugin Out There!

It doesn't get any easier than this! I just wish there were more options for removing the post type from the URL.

Deleted custom post type upon uninstall
By , for WP 4.2.2

Uninstalled this plugin because it's unreliable (registration bug was very annoying on all my sites, "cannot create post type because there is a page of the same name") and it deleted all the post types I created with it. Luckily I had the slugs written and when I recreated the custom post types all the posts were still there. Bugs, bugs, bugs, bugs.

Awesome Plugin

It was very good - now registration needed!!!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I loved this plugin, but now : "Types cannot update because your site's registration is not valid. Please register Toolset again for this site first."
Please remove this in the "FREE" Plugin

Thanks
