One of the worst documented plugins I saw

By pedjas on January 5, 2023

There is no documentation. In plugin description there is just a link to so called documentation that is just bunch of tutorial of doing specific stuff that are very scarce and targeted to people who already know how to use it. Nothing for first time users, to learn how to actually begin with plugin, or at least nothing that can be easily found.

simple, functional, best custom post type plugin

A very convenient solution thanks to which website development has become even faster (tested on 200+ projects)

Solid as a rock

By dj.cowan on December 16, 2022

Has become the cornerstone around the way in which we build and develop client sites. CPTUI integrates wonderfully with Gutenberg and allows us to segment and categorise our clients business logic in a fluid, dynamic way. A perfect No-code solution with as many options as one could possibly need. Can't believe CPTUI is free.

Standard equipment for each website

Great plugin! I use it for pretty much every website I build. Flexible, clear and workgs very well. Highly recommended

Really good support

More than one million active installations but the support is really good. I thought I used to see the author's blog long time ago. At that time he posted about Buddypress notification.

Excellent and useful but should have

Excellent and useful but it must have option like acf plugin system should be included

Incredibly useful plugin with incredible support!

This plugin is really useful as it makes creating custom posts way more simpler than coding your own functions in php. It also means that the custom posts are independant of themes so you can change theme without losing the post. And you can easily edit setting on your custom post any time. It has all the options + custom taxonies to create whatever type of post you need. Works with gutenberg editor, can easily change icons and can export posts if you need to move them. On top of that, the support is amazing. I found a bug with the export option and it was fixed the next day with a detailed explaination of the problem. Couldn't ask for more! This has made my life so much easier, I recommend to any developers who want to work with custom posts.

Good, but missing a bunch of options.

By swinggraphics on March 18, 2022

Works well, but it's missing a number of CPT options: rest_namespace, capabilities, map_meta_cap, register_meta_box_cb, rewrite[feeds, pages, ep_mask], template, and template_lock. I realize these are not common, but it's a drag when you go to create your third CPT and realize you need to find a different solution that will accommodate one of the missing options. It's no good to have a few registered in CPTUI and a few by hand.

Has all the required features and is every easy to use

If you are a WP-Pro, CPT UI is (in most cases) a must have!

By The-Dude on March 7, 2022

Thx for this great plugin! It fills a great gap, that Wordpress has since of its birth. Works like a charm and is not difficult to understand. While it doesn't offer the ability to add category images, I still consider it a must-have plugin for many professional WP installations.
