Introduction to Custom Post Type Tools

When building custom post types, MetaFields, and taxonomies in WordPress, popular tools like Advanced Custom Fields, MetaBox, JetEngine, or Toolset may come to mind. However, ACPT is a noteworthy newcomer offering versatility at competitive pricing. It is an innovative tool that simplifies the creation of custom post types, MetaFields, and taxonomies.

Setting Up ACPT with Bricks Builder

To set up ACPT with Bricks Builder:
