The Custom Post Type UI plugin is reliable and is constantly updated. The User Interface means I do not have to write PHP everytime I need to edit a Post Type.

I use this plugin whenever I need to register custom post types or custom taxonomies. It is very easy to use.

I did not have any real issues with this plugin until it decided to create an additional and new plugin without my knowledge or consent. When I tried to talk to the developer about this, they simply didn’t care or want to get to the bottom of how and why this happened. Got to the bottom of the mystery, it’s just a shame I had to deal with someone that refuses to be help and was rude about it first
