And that my friend is it. You now know how to set up and configure your own custom post types and taxonomies for any WordPress site. Of course what I've shown you in this course barely scratches the surface of what is possible. So now that you know how to get started, I urge you to explore the possibilities these new features offer you. And figure out your own ways of handling content with custom post types and taxonomies. And your learning path does not end here. With these new skills fresh in mind, you should take a deep dive into the many WordPress and Web Design and Development related courses we have right here in the Lynda.com library.
And while you're at it, also check out the continuously updated WordPress master class playlist, which takes you all the way from novice to seasoned developer. You should also check out our courses on standard based web development, front end techniques, responsive design, and web design. The more information you have, the better equipped you'll be to build new and exciting user experiences. Finally, I'd love to hear from you about how you are using custom post types and taxonomies in your own WordPress projects.
