    Hi guys,

    With all this COVID situation, my events category is practically useless, since evertyhing is closed now.

    But there´s a lot going on online, and I´d like to add a new category so people can find things to do online, similar as the events CPT.

    But can I create a new Event Post Type without affecting the one I have?
    When trying to create the new CPT I get a warning that says:

    Is Event Post Type? Tick to treat this post type as an event post type. (WARNING: enabling post type as event post type will move all existing posts to draft.)

    And I´m not sure what that means.

    Hope you can help me out here

    Stay safe 🙂

    Best

    Tania

    That means that if you already have listings in an existing CPT, and you want to change that CPT to have date and time capabilities, then all listings will go to draft because you will need to add dates and times to each of them.
    In other words, nothing to worry about for a new CPT.
    Thanks
