This month the talented Nile Flores (http://Blondish.net) will be sharing how custom post types can turn WordPress into a full featured Content Management System. Learn how to extend your site beyond just Posts and Pages! From Nile:
Custom post types- what?!? For many, they cannot begin to wonder why in the world they need custom post types, what they are, or how to apply it to their websites. In simple terms, custom post types extend the functionality of a website beyond the normal WordPress loop. The most common use of custom post types are by photographers, web designers, and graphic designers for their portfolios.
Some of what I am going to cover in this presentation are:
• Basic information about custom post types
• Examples of its use out there in the Internet (of course all WordPress powered sites)
• How to implement custom post types into your theme
• Some resources on custom post types
If you are not at least a WordPress theme designer, then this is not for you. However, if you are open to learning and want to extend your website’s functionality to its fullest potential, then by all means, come join in on the fun.
