At its core, this plugin merely facilitates the addition of extended functionality to a WordPress website: Custom Post Types, Meta Fields, Widgets, Taxonomies, Shortcodes, Admin Modifications, etc.

Why a functionality plugin, you ask? Think of it this way: instead of tying site architecture and management code to a particular Theme (via functions.php), a much more sustainable method is to use what's commonly refered to as a "functionality plugin". This seperates form (frontend layout) from function (administration), allowing you to retain functionality modifications across theme installations!

Here's what some intellegent people say on the subject:

"We recommend that you always put custom post types in a plugin rather than a theme. This ensures that the user’s content is portable whenever they change their website’s design." — Plugin Handbook

See also: Why Custom Post Types Belong in Plugins and How to Create Your Own WordPress Functionality Plugin for more supporting evidence behind adding additional site functionality via a plugin instead of a theme's functions.php file.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
