Custom Post Type

Custom Post Type is the ability to create new post types. Great, but what is a Post Type? WordPress has the ability to display different content types. Blog posts are categorized under post type Posts. A user can create a new Page under the Post Type Page. Attachments are a unique Post Type too.

WordPress default Post Types are:

  • Post (Post Type: ‘post’)
  • Page (Post Type: ‘page’)
  • Attachment (Post Type: ‘attachment’)
  • Revision (Post Type: ‘revision’)
  • Navigation Menu (Post Type: ‘nav_menu_item’)
  • Custom CSS (Post Type: ‘custom_css’)
