WordPress is extremely flexible when it comes to expansion. From small blog to a large social network it can be extend very efficiently and effectively if you use “Custom Post Types”.
In this topic I would like to discuss how we can extend WordPress Projects to anything, using WordPress Custom Post types, custom taxonomies and custom meta boxes.

Specifically, I’ll go through –

1. Default post types in WordPress
2. What is a custom post type and how it works.
3. Creating your own custom post types.
4. Best practices in creating custom post types.
5. Extending further with custom taxonomies and meta boxes.
6. Displaying your data.
