Hi team!

Be sure, your plugin is great!

Nevertheless, for a project, I no longer use the capabilities of wp-types, the client never changes fields or custom types ..

Since wp-types is a bit heavy to load, I was wondering if it was possible, or if you had one day created something, or found it through the community, a script that would export all custom post type and custom fields / group created in wp-types in a regular plugin in php in order to uninstall wp-types ?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Wilhem,

Thank you for contacting Toolset support. I am afraid we don’t have any such script. What you can try is this:

=== Please backup your database and website first ===

1. Deactivate Types >> and re-register your Custom Post type with same “slug” using native WP method:
http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-create-custom-post-types-in-wordpress/ (section: Creating a Custom Post Type Manually).

This way it will bring back all posts for that CPT.

2. Reactivate Types again.
3. Go to Toolset >> click Post Field Control button >> for all the Custom Fields that you want to keep without Types >> click “Stop managing with Types” for all those fields (screenshot attached).
4. Now you can deactivate & delete Types plugin.

This way you will have your CPT posts and Custom Fields without Types. Please note this is experimental workaround that I think can help. And you will loose Types UI or Interface which makes design looks different at the backend.

Thank you
