Toolset Types – Custom Post Types, Custom Fields and Taxonomies

The complete and reliable plugin for managing custom post types, custom taxonomies and custom fields.

Toolset Types let’s you add custom post types, custom fields and custom taxonomies to the WordPress admin. A convenient dashboard lets you control everything from one place.


We have released Types 3.0 with completely rewritten post relationships (many-to-many post relationships, repeatable field groups and much more).

However, Types since version 3.0 is a part of the complete Toolset package and it is available only with a Toolset account.

We will keep supporting the free version of Types with security and compatibility updates and bug fixes through 2018.


If you’re an experienced PHP developer, you’ll appreciate Types comprehensive fields API.

You will find detailed guides on adding custom post types, fields and taxonomy to the front-end, including:

and more.

Too much technical stuff to learn? The full Toolset package lets you build complete WordPress sites from within the admin dashboard.


Types lets you add custom fields for posts (meaning, WordPress posts, pages and custom content types), taxonomy terms and users. You can add any field types to different user profiles.


Using Access, you will be able to control what fields different users can edit and view. This way, you can make some field groups read-only for certain users, and fully-editable for other users.

For example, when you build a membership site, the site admin will be able to change membership levels for everyone and users will see their membership fields as read-only.


To get support for Types, please join our technical support forum. You will receive support directly from our developers, helping you deliver great sites on time and correctly.


Types includes support for a wide list of custom fields.

  • Single-line text
  • Multi-line text
  • WYSIWYG (WordPress Visual Editor)
  • Checkbox
  • Multi-value Checkboxes
  • Radio group
  • Drop-down Select
  • File upload
  • Image (Types includes a robust image-resize and caching engine)
  • Date (includes a JS date-picker)
  • Email
  • Number
  • Phone
  • Skype
  • URL
  • Audio
  • Video
  • Embedded media
  • Colorpicker
  • Post reference (using Types Parent / Child relationships management)

Types custom fields use the standard WordPress post-meta table, making it cross-compatible with any theme or plugin. Additionally, all fields can be repeating fields.


Types lets you easily setup custom post types and taxonomies. You can create new post types in seconds and use the advanced settings to customize every aspect.

  • Full control over every feature
  • Associate taxonomies with custom post types
  • Integrated control over custom fields display for different post types


Types lets you define parent / child relationship between different post types. You’ll easily setup one-to-many and many-to-many relationships and build powerful sites.


Types is the only custom fields and post types plugin that’s built multilingual-ready. It plays perfectly with WPML. You’ll be able to translate everything, including texts and labels in the WordPress admin and user-content for front-page. See the guide for translating Toolset.


Types is part of a family of plugins, including WPML and Toolset, developed and maintained by OnTheGoSystems. Our plugins power over 500,000 commercial sites, using WordPress as a complete CMS. While we love features, we know that stability, performance, usability and security are critical. All our plugins go through comprehensive testing, QA and security analysis before every release.

  1. Upload ‘types’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

How can I display custom post types on the home-page?

By default, WordPress will either display your blog posts or a specific page on the home-page.

To display custom post types on the home-page, you have two options:

  1. If you’re comfortable with PHP and WordPress API, edit the site’s template files (probably index.php) and load the custom post types there. Different themes do this differently, so we can’t really say what single approach works best. You should look at get_posts, which is part of the WordPress Template Tags system.

  2. If you want to build sites right away, without becoming an expert in WordPress API and try our Toolset Views. You’ll be able to load whatever content you need from the database and display it anywhere and in whatever way you choose.

We’re sorry, but we don’t know of any third option which is both free and requires no coding.

How can I create repeating field groups?

The paid version of Types, available through Toolset Website lets you create infinitely nested groups of repeating fields.

Can I use Types without Views?

Sure you can! Types, by itself, replaces several other plugins that define custom types and fields. We believe that it does it much better, but it’s up to you to decide.

If you also buy Views, with Toolset, you’ll have a complete solution for both defining and displaying custom data. You can achieve everything that Views does if you’re fluent in PHP and know WordPress API. When you buy Views, you’re also supporting Types development, but we’re not looking for donations. You should consider Views for its value and nothing else.

I am already a ninja developer, do I really need Views?

We honestly think so. Even if you’re an expert developer, do you really enjoy doing the same stuff over and over again? With Views, you can concentrate on the unique features of every new site that you build, without wasting time on routine stuff.

Views was originally inspired by the Drupal module with the same name. Around 90% of all Drupal sites use the Drupal Views module and many consider it as one of the most powerful features in Drupal. Now, you too can enjoy the same power (and even more), but without any of the complexity of Drupal.

Can Types display custom fields that I defined somehow else?

Yes! You can tell Types to manage any other custom fields. For example, if you’re using an e-commerce plugin, you can tell Types to manage product pricing. This will greatly help you display these fields with Types API or with Views.

Go to Custom fields control, under the Types menu. There, you can tell Types to manage existing custom fields.

How do I migrate an existing site to use Types?

The most important thing is to remember not to define custom post types and taxonomies in more than one place. If you previously defined them in PHP, first, remove your PHP code with the manual definition. The content will appear to temporarily vanish. Don’t panic. Now, redefine the same custom post types and taxonomies with Types. Everything will return 🙂

Types also includes data import from other plugins such as Custom Post UI and Advanced Custom Fields.

Can I import and export my Types settings?

Yes! Types includes its own import and export features, using an XML settings file. If you create a development site, you can easily transfer settings to the production site.

What is the advantage of using Types over separate plugins for custom post types, taxonomies and fields?

Types offers a much richer integration, which is simply impossible with separate plugins. For example, you have fine-grained control of where to display custom meta-boxes. Because Types defines both the post types and fields, we have greater control of where things can go.

Additionally, Types is the only plugin that lets you define parent/child relationships between different post types AND use that information to edit child data when editing a parent.
