I have created a new Post Type in the website. When I tried create a new item(post) in this Post Type, I cannot use the wp theme's options.

Attachment "q_01.jpg" is the new item created in custom post type. Attachment "q_02.jpg" is the edit post created in default "Posts". As you can see(circle in red), some of the options cannot use in custom post type.

How can I do in order to set the custom post type option as same as the default "Post" one?
Thank you for your attention!


That is because your Theme or Plugin that delivers those options does not Support Custom Post Types.

I am quite sure that if you use this tool here (hidden link) and generate a Custom Post Type with it, that Custom Type as well does not feature the settings.

Is this correct?
In case you can see the settings in such a new Custom Type, please let me know.
I will then as well need to know the exact steps you take to have those options in native Posts, which means, I will need to know what Theme and Plugin you use for this, and how.
