Function Reference/post type exists

跳转至: 导航搜索


This Conditional Tag checks if a post type exists by passing a post type name an argument. This is a boolean function and uses a global $wp_post_types variable for checking the post type existence, meaning it returns either TRUE if the post type exists or FALSE if it doesn't exist. The post type must be a registered post type.


%%%<?php post_type_exists( $post_type ); ?>%%%


(string) (required) Post type.
Default: Nonenoinclude
