Create WordPress Custom Post Types
Enter the name of the new content type, click on Save and it’s ready to use.
Besides this very basic and quick setup, Types also gives you access to all the advanced settings and functionality of custom post types and taxonomy.
Types also lets you define parent / child relationship between different post types. This will allow you to associate between different data types and tie everything together neatly.
Display Custom Content Easily
Types makes it easy to insert your custom content. When creating content, authors can click on the T icon and insert any field into the content.
Handle Existing Content
If you already have a large number of custom fields that you’re managing manually, you can let Types take control.
Tell Types what kinds of custom fields you have and they will each get their own fancy meta-boxes in the edit pages.
This works great with custom fields that you’ve previously created , or that other custom field plugins have managed before.
Embed Into Your Themes and Plugins
If you’re building themes and plugins, you can harness the power of Types and give your users a rich experience with WordPress.
Types has an embedded mode which you can use to include the functionality in your themes and plugins. This means that you can define custom types and customize the editing interface without writing a single line of code.
The embedded version runs as a theme function, not as a plugin. It doesn’t require any activation. Also, because it doesn’t include the Types GUI, it is much smaller than the full plugin version. Your users will still be able to customize things themselves if they download the Types plugin.
