Hi there

We maintain a WordPress Multisite for a client. Now they would like to add a CPT that should be available for all sites (just the CPT itself with its custom fields, not the content). I have searched the forum and am pretty sure that this is not possible with Toolset because the CPTs are stored in the database. Or did I misunderstand something?

However, would it be possible to export our CPT to a Plugin, that we can enable an all websites in the network? That way the CPT would be immediatly available for all sites. I'm fine if the toolset plugins have to run too on all sites, I just don't want to copy/paste all CTP settings manually.

I hope I was able to describe the challenge in a comprehensible way. If there are other good alternatives with Toolset, of course I like to hear them.

Thanks a lot!

Best,
Marcial

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Yes - that is correct. Its not possible.

However, would it be possible to export our CPT to a Plugin, that we can enable an all websites in the network? That way the CPT would be immediatly available for all sites. I'm fine if the toolset plugins have to run too on all sites, I just don't want to copy/paste all CTP settings manually.

The best way to install the Module Manger plugin and add your custom post type and custom fields to it and build the module and export it and later import it to your desired site.

Please check the following Doc:

Hi Minesh

So let's say we have 100 sites in our multisite, we have to export the module from the first page and then import the module 99 times? And in case we change something, we have to apply that change to every single page manually?

Yes, you should create and export the module from the site x from where you want to import the settings and if you have other 99 sites, you need to import to other 99 sites.
