How To Create Custom Multiple Post Types In WordPress

Here we learn about how to create custom multiple post types in WordPress.

Custom code copied and paste into your child theme’s functions.php file.

Here I have created ‘Story’ and ‘Chapters’ two different post types.

<?php
add_action( 'init', 'myblog_custom_post_types' );
function myblog_custom_post_types() {
  $cps 			= array();
  $cps['story'] 	= 'Story'; // add your custom post type here slug as key and name as value.
  $cps['chapter'] = 'Chapter';
  $icons 			= array('dashicons-media-interactive','dashicons-book');  // if you want to add icons then place icon slug here
  if( !empty( $cps ) && count( $cps ) > 0 )
  {
    $i = 0;
    foreach( $cps as $key => $value )
    {
      $labels = array();
      $args 	= array();
      $labels = array(
    'name'               => _x( $value, 'post type general name', 'qode' ),
    'singular_name'      => _x( $value, 'post type singular name', 'qode' ),
    'menu_name'          => _x( str_replace('s','',(substr($value,'-1')=='y' ? rtrim($value, "y").'ie' : $value )).'s', 'admin menu', 'qode' ),
    'name_admin_bar'     => _x( $value, 'add new on admin bar', 'qode' ),
    'add_new'            => _x( 'Add New', $key, 'qode' ),
    'add_new_item'       => __( 'Add New '.$value, 'qode' ),
    'new_item'           => __( 'New '.$value, 'qode' ),
    'edit_item'          => __( 'Edit '.$value, 'qode' ),
    'view_item'          => __( 'View '.$value, 'qode' ),
    'all_items'          => __( 'All '.$value, 'qode' ),
    'search_items'       => __( 'Search '.$value.'s', 'qode' ),
    'parent_item_colon'  => __( 'Parent '.$value.':', 'qode' ),
    'not_found'          => __( 'No '.$value.'s found.', 'qode' ),
    'not_found_in_trash' => __( 'No '.$value.'s found in Trash.', 'qode' )
    );
    $args = array(
      'labels'             => $labels,
      'public'             => true,
      'publicly_queryable' => true,
      'show_ui'            => true,
      'show_in_menu'       => true,
      'query_var'          => true,
      'rewrite'            => array( 'slug' => $key ),
      'capability_type'    => 'post',
      'has_archive'        => true,
      'hierarchical'       => true,
      'menu_position'      => null,
      'menu_icon'          => (isset($icons[$i]) ? $icons[$i] : ''),
      'supports'           => array( 'title', 'editor', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'comments','page-attributes' )
    );
    register_post_type( $key, $args );
    $i++;
    }
  }
}
?>
