Dialing custom post types to 11 with advanced filtering controls.

This is a tool for developers who want to turbo-charge their custom post type listings with metadata, taxonomies, and more.

Metaboxes are also automatically generated for all your metadata-entry needs.

  • Add columns to the post listing view
  • Filter post listings by custom criteria
  • Easily add metaboxes to custom post types
  • Automatically add registered taxonomies to post listings
  • Sort by post metadata
