    Hello,

    I’m curious if I would need a Custom Post Types plugin to build a complex website or if I could get the same result using only GP and GB Pro. At this point, I already use ACF.

    I would like to ask if, in addition to ACF, this particular plugin would be compatible with GP/GB and if it could help me in creating websites.
    Thanks a lot for your opinion.

    Best regards,
    Marcel

    Hi Marcel,

    Can you tell me what kind of complex website are you trying to build?

    If the plugin is built compatible with Twenty twenty theme, it would be compatible with GP.

    Hi Ying,

    Actually I’ve quoted the statement on the ACPT plugin’s landing page:

    Build easily complex websites in minutes.
    Imagination is your only limit.

    The question is: do I need a plugin to create custom post types? Or I can do it without a plugin?

    You can use one for ease, but you don’t need to. You can create CPTs through code.

    A plugin like Custom Post Type UI can create CPTs and generate the code for your CPT so you can delete the plugin after adding the code.

    Reference: https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/

    This article discusses what, why and when to use a CPT: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-create-custom-post-types-in-wordpress

    It also shows how to create one.
