This plugin doesn't work well enough to justify the barrage of self-promotion from its author. It will fill the top of the admin page with advertising. There is no way to opt-out. I'm removing it so that I can reclaim the most important space on the screen.

Hello, congratulations for the plugin, the simplest and most practical. A query: Can you edit the custom template with elementor free plugin? I'm trying but a message comes out and it can't be done. Has that edit function or do you have to wait some day for an update Thank you

Easy to use and easy to integrate with other plugins good job!

A quick and straightforward way of setting up custom post types and taxonomies through the admin interface. No unnecessary bulk, unlike some similar plugins, and uses the existing admin interface conventions, so easy to pick up. Admin menu icons blend in seamlessly, it all feels like part of WP, which is important for client-facing sites, I would argue. Works fine with WP 5.4.2. Would be five stars but the custom template builder could be improved. You currently (ver 2.1.13) have to use a mash-up of custom blocks and cut-and-pasted shortcodes in the Gutenberg editor to create a bespoke layout for a custom post. This process works, but it feels clunky and could be streamlined. Would also be good to have the option to assign your own template file, for those who are confident with coding these from scratch and want to edit elements outside of the main content wrapper. It would be great to have the custom post types and taxonomies automatically available as widgets (and maybe blocks) too, so they could be listed in other areas of the site. This isn't a deal breaker, and there are other ways of achieving this, but add this feature and I would happily pay for this plugin. In summary, a good, quick, no-fuss way of adding custom post types and taxonomies to your site without getting bogged down in editing your theme files. If you need to do this, this is the plug-in for you!
