Having your own WordPress site requires a lot of hard work. If you customize your site on your own then it’s even more hard work. Luckily, there are plugins that can make your load a little lighter. WordPress Custom Post Type plugins fall into that category.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how the custom post types are created and how your site can benefit from them.

First of all, you’ll need to install a plugin. I recommend the Custom Post Type UI plugin.

Click on install now and activate and there should be a new icon in the dropdown menu on the left called CPT UI - Custom Post Type User Interface. Here, you’ll see a couple of options which will be explained in this article.

Adding/Editing Post Types

After hovering over the CPT UI plugin menu item, click on ‘Add/Edit Post Types’ button.

On the next page, the first thing you need to do is to add the slug for the post type. Bear in mind that slugs need to be in lowercase in case you’re wondering why does WordPress keep correcting you as you type.

The slug you create will appear in the URL and you’ll have to put in both the plural and the singular label below the slug field.

Click on Add Post Type and voila! You have your own Custom Post Type which you can edit and customize any way you like.

It even adds your very own left-side menu item in your WordPress dashboard. In the case of this example, it’s called Movies.

Check Out Your New Custom Post Type

To see your custom post type editor, you have to hover over the newly added menu item on the left on the menu and click on Add New.

It’s nothing special right now, but it will be once we play with a few more settings.

Editing Your Custom Post Type

To add and customize your recently created custom post type, you should go to CPT UI and select ‘Add/Edit Post Types’. Hover over Edit Post Types and you’ll be able to change the post type or post types you’ve created.

You can change the basic things such as singular and plural labels. If you scroll down, the next section is for editing and adding additional labels. This part is very descriptive and simple and the changes are mainly aesthetic.

Where the magic happens is on the section where you choose what types of items are available in the editor of your new custom post type.

I recommend checking all the fields since it’s nice to have your options open. Selecting all these fields will show you everything that is available. Once you know exactly what you want available in the custom post type editor then you can slim down the options.
