Hi Erick,

Thanks very much for the code, looks just what I am after as I have 8 
custom post types, and so I have used the code as is.

But for some odd reason I cant get my head round as to why the line with 
"get_post_types( false )" on it doesn't return my custom post types that 
I have registered.

I have pasted the code for one of my custom post types here 
http://pastebin.com/YsHtYSiP have I done something not entirely correct 
in this code, I installed the custom-post-type-ui plugin when I create a 
custom post type with this and choose the same options the code 
"get_post_types( false )" does return my custom post type.

Thank you
