Since WordPress 3.0 added Custom Post Types, WordPress has become a truly powerful and extensible Content Management System for any need. In this talk we’ll review the what, why and how of custom post types. If you’ve been meaning to learn beyond the basics of Custom Post Types, now is the time!

Starting with what CPTs are and how they’re used, we’ll explain how to register/create them as well as how make them most of them in your themes and plugins. We’ll discuss the Custom Post Types API as well as its shortcomings, and consider various UI-based CPT plugins and their pros and cons as well other innovative approaches. Custom Post Types are the future of WordPress, don’t miss out!

Basic knowledge of WordPress coding standards & PHP. HTML/CSS helpful but not required.
