Post, Pages and Custom Post Types0:40 with Zac Gordon
You can think of posts as blog posts or news items. Posts generally have listing pages where you all of the posts are listed with links to read the full post. Pages are referred to as static content, meaning they do not update as often and normally have links to the content from the main navigation, rather than from listing pages like posts. When your content doesn’t fit exactly into either of these formats, you can setup custom post types. Good examples of custom post types include ecommerce items or images for a slideshow.
WordPress has 3 types of basic content you can work with—
posts, pages, and custom post types.
Posts are for things like a blog or news section.
Pages are for static single page content, like an about or services page.
Custom post types are for when neither of these content types work.
In our example site, the slide shows and destination pages are examples of custom content.
In the next 2 videos, we'll look at how to add and edit these different types of content.
