The complete and reliable plugin for managing custom post types, custom taxonomies and custom fields.
This plugin sounds great, but once you actually dive in to try to do something, you quickly realize that the plugin is buggy and documentation is painfully bad.
Twice I had to give the plugin support team access to our server to figure out why things didn't work correctly. The second time, the answer was just that it's a bug and the developers are working on it. I ended up reverting to an earlier version of the plugin (which I had backed up, thankfully,) which was less buggy than the newer one.
I used this because I had a very specific task (parent/child relationships between custom post types) and in the end it basically worked, although the process was not easy. It left me wondering if it would've been more efficient to just code it manually in PHP.
If you just want to set up basic custom post types, I suggest doing it manually in functions.php. Then the Advanced Custom Fields plugin is excellent for custom fields.
Nice plugin, nice feature which make it easy to add new categories and taxonomy, custom field and all ... but it just make the admin crawl ! Far too slow :( Too bad
I've created custom post types. Once I edited the settings, I've got an error. Please fix.
You cannot use this slug because there is already a page by that name. Please choose a different slug.
I love this plugin, but the child post doesn't work in the new version, i had to take the old version (1.3).
I have 14 custom post types.
And after using P3 profiler i have found that Types plugin takes 11 seconds to display a page.
I know i can use a cache plugin to fix this issue, but is this normal? 11 seconds? It takes 2-3 seconds without the types plugin.
Please let me know.
Some things I found didn't work as expected, such as password protection on pages/posts and pagination. Documentation for php integration is very light and not very well explained (e.g use of id tags beginning with $ to pull content from a specific post type - only found this through a lot of searching within the forums).
Despite being a paying customer - support for me, for some reason, is non existent. I've tried various times to post on their website forum as well as contact support regarding various issues but have received no response to any of my queries.
