How to Create Easy Custom Post Types and Fields in WordPress

by Marco Berrocal
Partner Relations, GreenGeeks
WordPress, by default comes with two content types (ok technically they come with a bit more); pages and posts. Both have their share of differences and similarities. Most people say that WordPress is just a blogging platform because of this. But there is more to it than that, and custom post types are exactly the reason why. They transform WordPress into a very powerful, simple and effective Content Management System by going beyond what is offered out of the box. And then we have custom fields. They are alongside custom post types, the one-two combination of what makes WordPress such a great content management system. They are, in a nutshell, data that can be added to a post, page, or a custom post type. So, what type of data? Any you can think of. In this Webinar, we are going to teach you how to do both!

Webinar Discussion Topics

What you will learn in this Webinar

Posts vs Pages

What’s the difference between each? Are there similarities? Which is best to use? We discuss the ins and outs of posts versus pages.

Scenarios and Creating Custom Post Types

When do you need them and why? Once we know this, we are going to create custom post types and setting their options. We are going to create them both manually and with a plugin.

Displaying Custom Post Types

How do we display custom post types? Are there any SEO rules? We will review the ways you can display single and multiple custom post types.

Understanding Custom Fields

How do we add them? There are multiple ways to do it. Some are easy while some are a bit harder. And we’ll go over how they work to understand them better.

Displaying Custom Fields

Unlike Custom Post Types, displaying them requires a bit of theme-finesse. We can also use short codes or even a block within the WordPress editor.
