Post Types Unlimited is an easy way to add custom post types and custom taxonomies to your WordPress site (the right way). The plugin works with any theme and is easily translatable. With Post Types Unlimited you can:
- create custom post types
- create custom taxonomies
This plugin does not currently allow you to add custom fields (in the works) but it works great with the ACF Plugin.
Post Types Unlimited makes use of core WordPress functionality for the admin screens and post type, taxonomy registration. This means the plugin is fast, slim and uses the familiar WordPress UI. Additionally you won’t find any upsell or advertisements in the plugin because there isn’t a “Pro” version. It’s the perfect plugin for adding post types or taxonomies for any site including your client sites.
The design of your post types and taxonomies created with Post Types Unlimited are controlled by your theme. The plugin doesn’t do any hacking or advanced modifications to your templates and thus works great with ANY theme. Now, if you are using the Total Theme you will actually see extra settings that allow you to modify the singular and archive displays for your post types. This is because Total hooks into the plugin to add extra settings. If you are a theme developer you can do the same by hooking into the “ptu_metaboxes” filter to register your own custom meta settings to the add/edit post type and taxonomy screens.
