add_post_type_support() WP 1.0

Register support of certain features for a post type.

All core features are directly associated with a functional area of the edit screen, such as the editor or a meta box. Features include: 'title', 'editor', 'comments', 'revisions', 'trackbacks', 'author', 'excerpt', 'page-attributes', 'thumbnail', 'custom-fields', and 'post-formats'.

Additionally, the 'revisions' feature dictates whether the post type will store revisions, and the 'comments' feature dictates whether the comments count will show on the edit screen.
