Adding custom post types to a plugin isn’t much different to a theme.

I’m working on this at the moment.

One suggestion I do have for people is to use the plugin activation and deactivation hooks to flush the rewrite rules.

Here’s a great plugin to bundle all your theme functionalities like CPT, taxonomies, metaboxes, shortcodes and widgets, thought I’d share.

Yeah, I created a plugin soon after the requirements were announced. It gives extra steps for users to do upon installation/update but it really is for the better.

I just wish authors would stop using custom post types. The problems they cause completely outweigh the 1 or 2 positives, which means they all eventually end up causing the buyers (and authors of other themes) a lot of unnecessary headaches.

?? Custom Post Types is (one of) the best thing that happened to WordPress and you advise against using it?

Hey guys,

Remember to prefix everything in your plugins (variables, functions and classes).
