How to Extend a Post Type
As well as creating new Custom Post Types, you can extend Post Types already available in your WordPress website. You may wish to extend the WordPress defaults, or extend a Post Type created by another plugin or theme. You can also extend Post Types that you have already created with Pods.
Select the Post Type to Extend
Navigate to Pods Admin > Add New and select Extend Existing.
From the Content Type drop-down you can select from the following:
- Post Types
You may find it useful to add extra fields to your Media, Users, and Comments, but for now select Post Types.
The Post Type drop-down lets you choose which Post Type you wish to extend.
When you’re happy, Next Step.
You’ll now be able to add fields, just as you did with your custom post type. The guide on creating a custom post type, has information on adding fields.
