How to Enable Features in an Existing WordPress Custom Post Type

I was working on a slideshow tonight in a custom WordPress theme and wanted to use Meteor Slides. The only problem is that Meteor Slides does not come with the post editor enabled. So, I used the “add_post_type_support()” function to enable it:


And whallah! Now Meteor Slides supports the post editor!

Note: Make sure to change “slides” to whatever custom post type you want to enable the features on.

    Yeah, add_post_type_support is a super handy function! I have used it a few times to add the excerpt to use as a slide caption.
