Support MB Custom Post Type Lost my Custom Post Type and all its posts

    I do not know if it is due to activing a specific plugin or upgrading my WP website to version 5.6, but every time I try to create (hit "publish") and edit (hit "save" button) custom post types, they end up in the "trash" and when I go to click on "restore", I lose everything and cannot find my custom post type anymore... Same goes for all the posts that were attached to this custom post type.

    Can you confirm that Meta Box is compatible with WP 5.6? Would you know how to get back all my lost custom post types & attached posts / images...? I'm very confused about what is causing this issue.

    I've tried to reproduce the issue on my local site but not see that. Screen record

    Please deactivate all plugins except Meta Box, Meta Box extensions, switch to the default theme of WordPress Twenty Twenty then create a new CPT again.

    If you've updated the plugin MB Custom Post Type from v1.9.x to v2.0.x or Meta Box AIO from v1.11.19 to v1.12.0, please follow this note to force migrate the CPT

    Let me know how it goes.


    Hello Long,

    Thank you for your prompt reply! I appreciate your confirmation that the problem is not with MetaBox. I have checked the plugin and can confirm that the problem was created by "Custom Post Type Changer" here:

    My posts came back when I re-created the same custom post type slug, so that's a relief.
