We’ve recently been working with some WooThemes, and wanted rename the Whitelight theme’s Features custom post type to Tours.
We didn’t want modify the theme’s PHP files, so we developed a Custom Post Type Editor WordPress Plugin that lets you customise (override) one or more labels for any registered custom post type.
This screenshot shows the dashboard interface that was used to rename Features to Tours:
The end result is the WordPress dashboard now refers to Tours instead of Features:
Much less confusing!
Open Source Wins Again
We knew this functionality would be useful to others, so we’ve released the plugin to the WordPress.org plugin repository.
If you’re interested in contributing, the plugin’s source code is on Github.
Update 10 May 2012: The plugin has been featured on wpmu.org.
