Pippin Williamson (whose standing desk you may remember from a recent WordPress Workspace feature) has released a new plugin called Easy Content Types. If you’ve ever wanted to create custom post types and taxonomies for your site, but are a bit freaked out working with code (or just don’t want to) this plugin could be perfect for you. Williamson’s plugin provides a handful of settings pages that make the creation of post types, taxonomies, and meta boxes.
If you aren’t sure what any of that means, the easiest way to show you is to have a look at the demonstration video below.
The Easy Content Types plugin is a paid plugin, available on CodeCanyon for $201. I know not everyone is crazy about paying for plugins, but for those among you there is hope here too: check out the giveaway of the plugin we’re running, just after the jump.
Update: The winners of this giveaway have been chosen: Sebastian and Myke, your plugins are on the way!
We have two copies of Pippin’s Easy Content Types Plugin to give away. If you’d like a copy of the plugin, just leave a comment sharing what you’d like to use the plugin to do. What sort of content types, taxonomies, and meta boxes would you like to be able to create on the fly? We’ll pick the two most interesting comments in 24 hours and send the plugin their way.
And hey, if you have a way of adding these custom content types to your site that you like better, or other plugins that do something similar, let us know in the comments as well.
