If you plan to use WordPress for more than just a blog or simple static website, you’re probably going to use custom post types in some way. Custom post types let you create new content types to organize and display your information. For example, a “product” post type for an eCommerce store or an “event” post type for an events website. While you can create your own custom post types using code, there are also some great WordPress custom post type plugins that can simplify the process for you.
As the name suggests, Toolset is actually a collection of different components, all of which come together to help you build custom WordPress sites.
If you want to create a custom post type, you’ll be interested in the Types component. Types gives you a simple interface to create and manage custom post types, as well as custom taxonomies and custom fields.
Where Toolset really earns its keep, though, is in the other components that you get access to.
These components let you take your custom content types and build a front-end interface for users to interact with:
Views – display custom post types on the front-end, including the ability to customize the template and include custom field data.
Forms – create front-end post submission forms. That is, users can submit content into a custom post type from the front-end (like submitting a new event to be listed).
Layouts – design the entire layout for your custom post types, including archive pages.
Access – restrict access to custom post types using user roles.
Maps – display custom post types as locations on Google Maps or Azure Maps.
So if you want a solution to help you work with all aspects of WordPress custom post types, Toolset is a great choice.
