WordPress Custom Post Types: Why and How

Custom Post Types are a way of distinguishing different types of content on your WordPress website that are different from Pages or Posts. Products in a store, portfolio pieces or real estate listings are all examples of how you can leverage the power of custom content.

Jan Wilson and Terry Burg will be presenting on how we can capture, categorize, search and display structured content with Custom Post Types. Jan will be showing us how to do this with plugins and Terry will be taking the developer view and showing us how to roll our own.

As always, we start at 6 with a meet and greet and there is always someone available if you have a specific question on your site. The presentation begins at 7.

You are welcome to bring your laptop, but bringing a hotspot and a fully charged battery is recommended. The Holiday Club router and plugs are very limited.

    Was delighted to have the meet on Google Hangout! Some feedback: It was hard to see the screen and there was a lot of background noise. I was wondering if having the presenter be one of the members of the hangout would help. Thanks, it's a long way for me to come but would be interested in being a remote audience again.

    I'll post these on the discussion section as well and on the YouTube page that got about halfway through Jan's presentation before my battery died.. Lesson learned. Here's the links to the presentation slides.

    I just talked to Jan & Terry - there will be slides to share and I'm going to attempt recording this on a Google hangout. If anyone has any experience with this, please come early and let me know!

    Wish I could make it because I need to do something where custom post types would be a good fit, but things are just too hectic right now.
