In a plugin, i've created 3 Custom Post Types, for example:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Goldfish

I've also created a "Pets" Top-level menu page using add_menu_pagewherein I'd like to add the 3 CPTs as submenu items.

Problem: I cant figure out how to add the Custom Post Types as Submenu Items.

The Codex states:

For Custom Post Types: add_submenu_page( 'edit.php?post_type=your_post_type', ... );

But I'm not getting it. Also, is this the best way to go about it?

Please advise.
