Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Building out an advanced custom post type, part of WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies (2014).
Like I said in the previous movie, the custom post…that I've created for testimonials so far is very basic.…And it's not taking advantage of the functionality that we…have available to us when we create a custom post type.…So now we're going to add a new set of arguments and a…new set of labels to fully customize this particular custom post type.…What I want to do is first of all, move the post type itself up…directly under post, and also swap out the…icon so that it's clearly separate from posts.…I want to add new labels so that where ever you are within…WordPress admin, when you're working with…testimonials it clearly says that its working…with testimonials, and I want to disable most of the functionality within the…post type, because for this post type, I don't want to have excerpts.…
Or discussions.…Or comments.…Or categories of tags or anything else.…I just need the title, the post comment, and the post thumbnail.…All of this can be achieved using the…arguments available to you from register post type.…
