Custom Post Types

WordPress can be more than just a blog. By default, WordPress allows you to create blog posts and pages (and links, and comments,...). But it can do more than that. With a little elbow grease, you can put in all kinds of different information. Blog post and page are two different types of posts. WordPress also allows you to create custom post types. Your site could have the post type employee, or product, or movie, or super hero.

Normally, you need to be a code monkey to pull this off. If requires quite a bit of programming. Postyper aims to remedy that. It provides you with an interface to define your own custom post types, without the computer science degree.

Once you have your custom post types defined, you'll need to work on a way to display them. Postyper creates archives for you, and individual pages for your posts. But in order to display your custom field information, you'll need to modify your templates. For this, you'll probably need to get a template developer.

For Template Developers

Postyper uses WordPress's native post meta system. So all custom information entered by editors can be retrieved using the get_post_meta() or get_post_custom() functions. You can also use the WordPress hierarchy to create templates for each post type, including single-postype.php, archive-postype.php, etc.
