The Magic of Custom Post Types

October 18, 2011

Custom Post Types were introduced in WordPress 3.0 and they changed the way theme and plugin developers think about and use WordPress.

Custom post types allow us to extend WordPress’ functionality and manage content like never before. Before 3.0, we were forced to use and remember a number of custom fields, or use tons of categories in order to push WordPress into a CMS-like territory. These days, though, it’s much easier, thanks to custom post types and custom taxonomies. In true Nettuts+ fashion, join Jeffrey Way as he builds a demo app live from scratch. Along the way, he’ll teach you everything you need to know about custom post types.
