Developer-friendly Best Practices


  • This is a vehicle post archive showing post title, full size featured image, price, vehicle attribute table, carfax button, and link to vehicle post single.
  • This is an inventory grid showing featured image thumbnails and post titles. A full inventory link takes users to the vehicle post archive.
  • This is a list of vehicles in the administrator dashboard that the user sees when she clicks the Vehicles or All Vehicles menu items. Each vehicle is listed by year, make, model, trim, stock number, color, odometer, price, and photo count. If the vehicle has photos, a thumbnail is also shown. This screen shot was taken on version 3.1.0.
  • This is the edit screen that adds or edits a single vehicle. The post content box is demoted to handle only the sentence-form vehicle description, and the entire edit screen is enhanced to support vehicle attributes. This screen shot was taken on version 3.1.0.
  • This screenshot shows a vehicle post in the WordPress block editor. An editor sidebar for the Inventory Presser plugin is expanded and contains vehicle attribute fields. An arrow points to a button with a key on it that reveals the editor sidebar.
  • This screenshot shows a vehicle archive on the Twenty Twenty theme before any customization.

How much does this plugin cost?

This plugin is free and open source. Free and paid add-ons & services are available at

Does it decode VINs?

Not for free. A VIN decoder add-on is available at

Can I import my inventory into this system?

Yes. Visit Adding or Importing Inventory to determine what is best for your client. We use the WordPress REST API to deliver inventory updates. Read how we do it. Vehicles in Inventory Presser are stored in a custom post type using meta fields, taxonomy terms, and photo attachments, and many CSV/spreadsheet importer plugins like WP All Import work with custom post types. If imports sound challenging, Friday Systems (that’s us) feeds hundreds of sites running this plugin. It may be easier to let Friday Systems handle the last leg for a monthly fee.

Will Inventory Presser work with my theme?

Yes. Check out our Theme Compatibility Guide. If your theme does not include templates to display listing pages and vehicle detail pages, the plugin will provide the markup for those pages automatically. There are shortcodes like [invp_archive] and [invp_single_vehicle] as a last resort. A number of Template Tags make designing custom templates easy.

It's a very lightweight plugin with plenty of capabilities for customization. Corey, the plugin creator, has been very helpful in answering questions as my team and I implemented the plugin in our new dealership website.
