With the launch of WordPress 3.0+ we now have the option of making WordPress work more like a CMS by creating and using our own custom post types.

Jayson and Liz will present on both custom post types and custom fields, when to use them, how to use them and how they work.

After a short break in the last 50 minutes of the meeting we will come back and create a custom post type and some custom fields and output the content to a website.

So, bring along an idea for a custom post type you might want to build, along with the fields you will need to create and the information to access the website you want to add the custom field too. It could be a movie database, event calendar, recipe database, mp3 database…. the ideas are only limited by your imagination (or your clients imagination.)
