    • Timeless
    • Static content E.g.: contact, disclaimers, colophon

  • 9. Basics: the Post
    • A message published on a specific time:
      • a blog post
      • a news item

    • Can be labeled:
        • categories (hierarchical)
        • tags (non-hierarchical)
      • (taxonomies!)
  • 11. Custom Post Types
    • For:
      • other / more fields than the post/page fields
      • keeping some content apart from other content
  • 12. Custom Post Types

      • hardcoded
      • added / maintained through a plugin
  • 13. Custom taxonomies
    • Default taxonomies:
      • category, tag, link-category
  • 14. Custom taxonomies
    • For grouping content differently
    • Either:
      • Hierarchical (branches)
      • Tag-cloud style
  • 15. Known unknowns
