#36685 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Cannot edit the default args of default post types

Hi Devs,

I tried to remove some features from the default post types (eg. post-formats) but since both plugins and theme are called after create_initial_taxonomies and create_initial_post_types, i cannot do a thing.

So i suggest to call theses 2 function after calling at least the plugins, if we consider post-types/taxonomies as a plugin "territories".

Haven't checked yet, but does remove_post_type_support() not work?

Replying to websupporter:

Haven't checked yet, but does remove_post_type_support() not work?

Actually i'm not only using this for removing features but also for changing other settings such as labels and icon ... etc

P.S. Im transferring the post type post to something else lets say Product

Beside nothing will work even remove_post_type_support cause create_initial_post_types is called before any plugin or theme :P, so if you remove post-formats using the function remove_post_type_support will not remove the metabox on post editor page

Actually it does work because create_initial_post_types is called again on init action, this is little bit tricky

Would it make sense to allow these default post/taxo args to be filterable? That way altering labels, support, etc. would be a relatively painless process. I feel like as it is now, doing something as simple as changing "Posts" to "News" is needlessly complicated.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 4.4
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The register_post_type_args (and register_taxonomy_args) filter has been available since WordPress 4.4 (see #17447). As mentioned above, the default post types are re-registered on the init hook, so these filters also apply to default post types and taxonomies.

Example usage:

add_filter( 'register_post_type_args', function( array $args, $name ) {
	if ( 'post' === $name ) {
		$args['labels']['menu_name'] = 'News';
	return $args;
}, 10, 2 );

Please feel free to re-open if something about these filters is not working as expected.
