We have but one goal with Custom Post Type UI Extended: To continue to make it super simple for our users to display their data in new and interesting ways.
With that, we’d like to introduce you to Custom Post Type Extended version 1.2.0!
We knew early on we wanted to include the ability to add sliders using your posts’ featured images, but our goal was to find a slider library that wasn’t bloated, would be extremely unlikely to conflict with the majority of themes and plugins, and of course, it had to be something that would be extendable. We found everything we were looking for in a library called Slick Slider.
We’ve integrated Slick Slider into CPTUI Extended, and created a template that makes it incredibly easy to add a slider using any of your custom post types.
Here’s a quick walk-through video to show you how easy it is to use:
And for all you developers out there, over the next few weeks, we’ll be releasing a handful of tutorials and code snippets to help you customize your slider even further.
One of our most requested features so far has been the ability to show taxonomy lists. The Taxonomy List shortcode shows a list of terms you select. The terms each link to their associated archive page, which show a list of related posts. WordPress will use a default template to display your taxonomy archive. You can read about taxonomy templates here if you wish to create custom templates. Most good themes will have an archive.php for display.
Each post type will have the taxonomy list shortcode. When selected, the shortcode will display the taxonomy and terms for that post type. You can chose to show them orders or unordered in a bulleted type list.
