Custom Post Type Images


Custom Post Type Images makes it easy to attach an image to any custom post type, which you can then call as necessary in the archive page for that post type OR in the single itself, depending on how you use the plugin. Think of it as a featured image for your post types, which you can use on overview or other pages.


  • cptImages options page.


  1. Upload cptImages directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the Custom Post Type Images plugin through the ‘Plugins’ page in WordPress
  3. Go to Tools > Manage Custom Post Type Images.
  4. To use, select an image for the custom post type and attach. You can then use the image in various ways:

As a shortcode. Put [cptImage] wherever you want the image to appear. Not that in this usage (without a parameter) it will only appear when you are on a single item of that custom post type OR in the archive page itself. To call any attached image, use [cptImage cpt=”Custom Post Type Name”].

In PHP in your template. To retrieve the image url to a variable, use get_cptimage_image($optionalname, $echo) (you can use get_cptimage_image(“Custom Post Type Name”) to retrieve a specific post type image, or get_cptimage_image(“Custom Post Type Name”, true) to echo the url rather than retrieving it. To merely display the image, call cptimage_image(“Custom Post type Name”) or simply cptimage_image(). Not that if you do not pass a post type name it will only appear when you are on a single item of that custom post type OR in the archive page itself.

Please note, as with every plugin or theme modification, you should do a backup of your files beforehand. Although we’ve tested this across many installs, we are not responsible for anything it does to your system and do not guarantee support.
