    My website is currently designed using Manual. I want to redesign my website by building a new template from scratch. I want to use the CPTUI plugin to create the custom post types (knowledgebase, documentation, etc.) However, how do I export Manual’s custom post types and content into CPTUI? I have already tried installing CPTUI, but it won’t allow me to create the same slug “knowledgebase” because it already exists.

    We haven’t tested CPTUI yet, so we’re not familiar with its functionality. However, we can provide you with a general idea of the process. Begin by navigating to Tools > Export and export the ‘Knowledge Base’ and ‘Documentation’ content. After exporting, proceed to ‘Plugin > Install Plugins.’ Deactivate the ‘Manual Framework (Post Type)’ plugin and attempt to create custom post types (e.g., knowledge base, documentation). This should work effectively.

    Thanks for the reply. I don’t want to export the site to a different domain or host. I just want to redesign the website using my own template and using CPTUI. When I install CPTUI, it will not let me create the same “knowledgebase” slug because it already exists. I don’t want to use a new slug because that will break all inbound links from other websites. What I want to do is create the same knowledgebase post type in CPTUI, and have it recognize all of the existing knowledgebase post types in Manual.

    I guess the better question is how do I delete the “knowledgebase” and “documentation” register_post_type() call? In what file is this call located in the Theme Editor?

    I have also created an additional slug in the portfolio called, “camping”, I need to delete that too, so that I can re-register all three using CPT UI.

    Apologies for the wait. There are two crucial areas that require your attention:

    1. In the plugin directory ‘plugins/manual-framework/post-type,’ you’ll find all the custom post_type references.

    2. Navigate to the theme directory ‘themes/manual/framework/ReduxCore/manual,’ where the slug name and various other settings for the custom post_type are linked.

    Adjusting these two sections should help you accomplish your intended goal.
