Adding Custom Content lesson question

I'm going through the "Adding Custom Content" lesson in the "How To Build A WordPress Theme" class.

I am unable to figure out how to edit a custom field rule to show if Post Type is Equal To "work" or "testimonial". Neither of those are options in the drop down box.

How do I get "work" and "testimonial" to display?

They don't show up in the sidebar either, but they are visible at the beginning of the lesson video even though the prior video does not show them. It is not explained how to do this.

Hey Adam,

I understand you already have the Advanced custom fields plugin already.

You'll have to create the custom posts by using the Custom Post Type UI plugin that Zac goes over.

This is the first plugin he goes over in the video you linked.

Ha! Thanks!

I watched the videos once through and then I went to go do them myself and obviously forgot/missed that the second time around.
