Custom Post Type UI Extended Features

Network-wide post types and taxonomies

If you are running a WordPress Multisite network, Custom Post Type UI Extended will help you create network-wide post types and taxonomies. This will allow you to create a post type or taxonomy in a single location, and have it immediately available for every site in your network. You will no longer have to recreate the same one in each site or update one change for each one. All the while, you can still create post types and taxonomies for specific individual sites.

To begin with network post types and taxonomies, visit your network admin and network-activate Custom Post Type UI Extended before visiting the network admin panel.

Shortcode generator

With the shortcode generator, provided by Custom Post Type UI Extended, we have made it extremely easy to display individual post type posts or lists of posts type posts anywhere that you can use a shortcode. We provide a new UI to select the display parameters and click a button to insert the shortcode wherever you want. Once saved, we take care of the rest and display the data you selected.

If you are a developer yourself, we have made it easy to create your own shortcodes for Custom Post Type UI Extended. See our developer docs for more information on adding your own.
