Someone knows the "Easy Content Types Plugin" ?

Easy Content Types provides an extremely easy to use and intuitive interface for creating custom post types, taxonomies, and meta boxes.

 

Are there some experiences with PageLines?

 

Also i found this  "Visual Composer for WordPress" - that says it'll that seems to be a little buggy and removes functions from wordpress.

Has somebody ever tried on of these premium plugins?

HI,


Both of these are premium plugins, so there is noway for us to test them. However, all PageLines products are built according to WordPress API standards and do work with the majority of plugins out there.

 

When creating Custom Post types, I would recommend either:

 

http://wordpress.org...e-custom-types/

http://wordpress.org...m-post-type-ui/

 

As for the Visual Composer, you can pretty much do everything that plugin can do, using PageLines Grid and our shortcodes.

Thanks Danny - thats true - i never had trouble with PL and plugins. I'll have a look at your recommendations.

 

But i do have experiences with bad coded (so called) premium plugins :growl:

 

i'm just curious - has someone bought one of these premium plugins and tried them with pagelines?

 

and i thought off topic would be the right place for that question.

Hi,

 

I've used Easy Custom Post Types (the premium plugin) without any coding issues at all.  It seems a bit complicated to implement the results, but generally easy to use.  There were no conflicts with PageLines or our plugins, sections or child themes (of the ones I use).

 

I've not tried Visual Composer.

 

Hope this helps.
