WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies
1h 45m Advanced May 19, 2014

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

By default WordPress has five post types (posts and pages are the most popular), organized using built-in taxonomies like categories and tags. However, you can extend the functionality of WordPress and display different types of content according to your own rules by creating custom post types and taxonomies. In this course, Morten Rand-Hendriksen shows how to create a plugin for new post types and taxonomies, create new post types and taxonomies (hierarchal and nonhierarchal), and build templates that display the custom post types and taxonomies in new and effective ways.

Topics include:
  • What are WordPress custom post types and taxonomies
  • Creating and testing the plugin
  • Creating posts with custom post types
  • Building basic custom taxonomies
  • Creating custom post type templates
  • Including custom post types in the front page index

Welcome

Hi, I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen. Welcome to WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies. In this course, I'll show you how to create custom post types and taxonomies in WordPress to manage new types of content and allow for more advanced organization and categorization. To start off, I'll explain what custom post types and taxonomies are, and how they work. Next, we'll build a basic plugin and use it to set up new custom post types with different abilities.

We'll also create several custom taxonomies, both hierarchical and non hierarchical and relate them to different post types. And finally, I'll show you how to build custom templates and how to use these to create a better user experience for your visitors. Custom post types and taxonomies make the application do pretty much anything you want. So let's get cracking with WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies.

There are currently no FAQs about WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies.
