Why Use Custom Post Types?

Custom post types allow you to display content in a specific way that may not fit into the default post or page categories.

You can also set the post layout on every page of your website, adding a unique touch and making it stand out. Here are some guidelines to help you decide when to use custom post types:

 

How to Create Custom Post Types

To create a new custom post type, you will need to use the register_post_type() function from WordPress. This function allows you to create a new post type by its labels, supported features, availability, and other parameters. The register_post_type() function accepts two parameters: $post_type – The name of the post type. $args – An array of arguments that define the post type.

 

Here is an example to create a custom post type:

register_post_type( 'book', [
  'labels' => [
    'name' => 'Books',
    'singular_name' => 'Book',
  ],
  'public' => true,
  'has_archive' => true,
] );
