Custom Post Types – What, Why, and How

A session at WordCamp Detroit 2011

Sunday 13th November, 2011

9:45am to 10:30am (LMT)

With WordPress 3.0 came the power of custom post types (CPTs). They can be rather intimidating to implement for the first time, but I’ll attempt to make your learning curve less steep than mine was.

In this discussion I’ll cover:

  • what are CPTs
  • CPT applications
  • how to implement CPTs on your project

I’ll touch on related topics including custom taxonomies, custom metaboxes, and custom page templates for the archives and single post pages for your CPT.
