  1. Upload the ”cpt-descriptionsfolder to the/wp-content/plugins/` directory

  3. Use the_cpt_description() or get_cpt_description() to display/use the custom post type description in your theme


How do I display a/the custom post type description?

You can use the function the_cpt_description() to echo the current custom post type description or you can use get_cpt_description() to return the description for use in code.

If you are not on an archive/single custom post type template you can pass the post type variable to either function (eg. the_cpt_description(‘books’)) to get the description for that post type.
