Video: Using CPT UI to create custom post types

Custom post types are an often overlooked way to organize your content at a top-most level. That’s because to many the term “post type” or “content type” doesn’t necessary mean much. In essence, a “post type” is a grouping of articles or, as WordPress calls them, “Posts”, into its own little area that is separate from other posts and that has a menu icon on the left admin navigation menu.

Custom post types are supported in the default builder and can easily be mapped dynamically as well. Likewise, custom post types can be assigned custom fields that pertain only to that specific post type, allowing users to build out unique post types with unique, custom information. We’re planning a video on custom fields as well to show you how that works.

In the meantime, we’ve got our next video on the calendar and will get producing it very soon.
