    Great tip! How would you change the text for a specific custom post type only?

    • MattStrange

      function custom_title_text( $title ){$screen = get_current_screen();if ( ‘customposttype’ == $screen->post_type ) {$title = ‘My Custom Post Type Title Text’;}return $title;}add_filter( ‘enter_title_here’, ‘custom_title_text’ );
