Creating Custom Posts Plugin
First thing I am working off of the localhost using MAMP.
Second. I am working through How to Build a WordPress Theme > Content Strategy with WordPress > Adding Custom Content to the Site
The problem: Every time I try to install the plugin "custom post types ui" I get a message that says "To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server. Please enter your FTP credentials to proceed. If you do not remember your credentials, you should contact your web host."
This message doesn't show up in the video, so I do not know how to work through it. Why do I need FTP information if I am working locally?
I want to work through this because I want to work quicker (locally). I do not want to do all my work at a slower pace (live, online).
Any comments on how to work through this would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
