When I installed the plugin I was quite happy with this plugin comparing to the CPT UI plugin because of its lightweight size but after using this plugin for > 6 months I advised everyone doesn't install this plugin. This is in conflict with permalink structure, data retention after deactivate, data export and import, taxonomy base structure issues, and a lot more. Most important when you create a child CPT post then due to code insufficiency this causes 404 errors. I will change my review if all issues are fixed in the plugin in the future. But for the time being, I recommend to use the CPT UI plugin. I'm Sad (*_*)

It puts the line "Post type created with the “Custom post type” plugin." on archive pages with custom post I make. I don't think my visitors are interestend in this message. Please remove it. If not, please let me know, then I switch to another plugin that isn't that spammy.

I really like the Plugin, its easier and better than CPUI. Menu-Postion would be nice, but thats all =)
