Easy Content Types provides an extremely easy to use and intuitive interface for creating custom post types, taxonomies, and meta boxes.

This is the best custom post type plugin and will completely remove the difficult task of manually creating custom post types, taxonomies, and meta boxes.

Custom Post Types in Seconds

With Easy Content Types simple-to-use interface, you can create many different custom post types in just seconds. Simply choose the options you want enabled for your post type, enter a name and click “Add Post Type”. It’s that easy.

Custom post types make it exceptionally easy to create advanced organization schemes for your website. Have a movie or book review site? Place all of your reviews into a “Reviews” section, instead of a non-intuitive “reviews” category under Posts.

Custom Taxonomies to Organize and Sort Your Custom Post Types

Much like the built-in Categories and Tags, custom taxonomies allow you to define an organization within your custom post types. In just seconds you can add a “Genres” category to your movies or books review website and “categorize” all reviews into their correct Genres. It works just like the regular categories, but is so much better because you get to define the exact name your taxonomy uses.

Taxonomies can be used to organize the display of your content on the front-end of your website as well, they are not just for administration. This means that your website becomes much easier to navigate for your users!

Meta Boxes and Custom Post Meta Fields

Meta Boxes allow you to add additional information sections to your post editor. Going back to the reviews example, this means that you could easily have a section with fields for “author name”, “publication date”, “rating”, publisher”, etc. These fields can be created in just seconds and there are many types to choose from, including text inputs, drop down menus, radio buttons, check boxes, and more.

The custom meta fields can be used to display additional information, or used (if you’re a developer) to control aspects of your layout in your theme files. They are extremely powerful, and so simple to use.

For Developers and non Developers Alike

Easy Content Types has been built with developers and regular users both in mind, and has been optimized to be as easy to use as possible. It does everything for you, from registering the post types, setting up the menu icons, creating meta box fields, saving data, and even automatically creating theme template files (based off of existing theme files).

If you are not a developer, then you will love how much power and control this plugin gives you; if you are a developer, then you will absolutely fall in love with how Easy Content Types does all the heavy lifting for you. Forget about writing lines and lines of code to setup your post types, taxonomies, and meta boxes: Easy Content Types does it all for you.

Integrates perfectly with the WordPress Interface

Easy Content Types has been designed to fit perfectly into the core WordPress design. All aspects of the admin utilize stylesheets and other assets provide by WordPress core. This means that when WordPress’s UI is updated, so is Easy Content Types.

Because of how perfectly Easy Content Types fits into WordPress, you can include it in your client projects or in for-sale themes and your clients/users won’t even know it’s not part of WordPress core.

Testimonials

From PixelInPrint:

I want to add my voice as a testimony to Pippin. This is such a great Plugin which keeps getting better. What makes it truly awesome however is the support. If every dev were like Pippin life would be would be wonderful. So many ways to get in touch and unbelievably considerate and fast response to emails. You can buy this and other plugins from this guy with complete confidence! Thanks.

From kalelvz:

I wanted to leave a testimonial for this plugin. Not only is the plugin intuitive, Pippin has taken care to really consider users and make sure documentation is written out quite well. That’s a rarity with most devs I know, but Pippin is quite adept at it, with support in the form of a discussion board, tutorials and – gasp – actual emails that are responded to within an hour or so. I can’t speak enough of the support, it’s truly phenomenal, and well worth the nominal price of the plugin.

From coldfirepromotions:

This is not only a 5-star plugin with an incredible amount of utility and functionality, but the support deserves AT LEAST 5 -stars, too. It hasn’t been more than ~12 hours since I purchased this plugin and the author has already helped me solve an issue I was having. Big shout out to mordauk! If you’re thinking about purchasing this plugin, I can assure you it will be well worth the money spent!
