Extended CPTs should work with versions of WordPress back to 4.9 but these versions are not tested and not officially supported.
Extended CPTs is a developer library, not a plugin, which means you need to include it as a dependency in your project. Install it using Composer:
Other means of installation or usage, particularly bundling within a plugin, is not officially supported and done at your own risk.
Need a simple post type with no frills? You can register a post type with a single parameter:
And you can register a taxonomy with just two parameters:
Try it. You'll have a hierarchical public post type with an admin UI, a hierarchical public taxonomy with an admin UI, and all the labels and updated messages for them will be automatically generated.
Or for a bit more functionality:
Bam, we now have:
- A 'Stories' post type, with correctly generated labels and post updated messages, three custom columns in the admin area (two of which are sortable), stories added to the main RSS feed, and all stories displayed on the post type archive.
- A 'Genre' taxonomy attached to the 'Stories' post type, with correctly generated labels and term updated messages, and a custom column in the admin area.
register_extended_taxonomy() functions are ultimately wrappers for the
register_taxonomy() functions in WordPress core, so any of the parameters from those functions can be used.
There's quite a bit more you can do. See the wiki for full documentation.
