The final part of the guide to the Custom Post Type UI WordPress plugin will take a look at how to manage post types and taxonomies so that you can get the best out of your custom posts and content.

Step 1) Head to the Dashboard and scroll down the sidebar to ‘CPT UI’ and you will see two options on the dropdown: ‘Manage Custom Post Types’ and ‘Manage Taxonomies’.


Step 2) On the Dashboard, click on ‘Manage Custom Post Types’  from the dropdown under ‘CPT UI’ to get started managing your custom post types. This will bring you to a Dashboard that contains all of your custom post types, and will include all of their details, including Name, Label, Public, Show UI, Rewrite and Rewrite Slug, the total published and supports. From here, you can edit and delete any of the custom post types without having to go into each one individually.


Step 3) The same rules as above apply to the ‘Manage Custom Taxonomies’ dashboard, which is found on the dropdown under ‘CPT UI’. The Dashboard will show all of your live custom taxonomies, and you can edit and delete them as you see fit.


Step 4) Here is an example of what you can do with a live Custom Post Type. As you can see, the options available to you are ‘Delete’, ‘Edit’ and ‘Get Code’. By choosing the latter, you will be given the code that you can then place into your themes functions.php file so you can manually create this custom post type.


Step 5) The same rules apply for the Manage Custom Taxonomies page. Click ‘Get Code’ and then copy and paste the code into the functions.php file of your WordPress theme to allow for manual creation of taxonomies.
