What is a custom post type?

When using WordPress, most people stick to the built-in “posts” and “pages”. However, WordPress also has a powerful feature available called “custom post types”. While they can be tricky to configure, they will make your life much easier as you work with your website.

This short video will show you how custom post types work, and what makes them so powerful.

In the video above, we created the custom post type by hand for optimal use and performance. However, there are great plugins such as the WP-Types Toolset that will give you a nice interface to build and implement your custom post types.

I encourage you to consider a custom post type (or two or three) as you build out your next project. If you have any questions about when or why you might want to use a custom post type, please leave a comment below.
