Wordpress TutorialThe following excerpt is from a very detailed tutorial about what custom post types are, and what you can do with them by Justin Tadlock.

One of the things I’ve been hoping would be implemented in WordPress for years is the ability to create custom content types. The inability to do this has been WordPress’ weakest point when compared to rivals in the CMS market.

In WordPress 3.0, we’ll have the capability to easily create and manage content via custom post types. Not only that, but you won’t have to rely on a plugin to do this for you. It can be done via your theme’s functions.php file with a few lines of code.

There are other 3.0 features such as menu management and multi-site, but this is the most promising feature coming. In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through the creation of custom post types and how they can be used for your blog. Read more »

WordPress 3.0 Launches

Written by Bec on June 17, 2010 – 1:46 PM -

From Matt Mullenweg:

You’ve probably already seen the notice in your dashboards, so I’ll keep this one short and sweet:


WordPress 3.0 is faster, stabler, and more secure, so you can focus on what matters (your audience) and let the rest fade to the background.

Custom post types, MU merge, menu editor, Twenty Ten theme, over 1,200 bug fixes… there’s so much to enjoy in this new release, we’re really proud of it. It’s the best WordPress yet, and available for a limited time for only free ninety nine. 😉

Tell your friends, help them upgrade, write new themes that use the new features, spread the good word.
