Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a basic custom post type, part of WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies (2014).
…Out of the box WordPress actually has 5 different post types.…2 of them are obvious, we have Posts and Pages.…In addition, we also have Media items or Attachment posts.…So these are the single posts that are created every time you upload…a new image or video or audio file or something else to the site.…And then, we have what's known as revision posts.…These are the individual revisions for a single post or a single page so you…can go back in time and look at previous versions of that post or page.…
And finally, each of your menu items is actually a post.…So when you create a new menu item and place it in a custom…menu, you're actually creating a new post item and that post item is called in.…So this gives you a very clear picture of…how advanced the custom post type function within WordPress is.…We don't use it just to create posts.…We can use it to create anything we want.…Creating new custom post types means using the register post type function.…And you can find all the information you…need on the Codex for the register post type.…
