Yes Matt, check out this follow-up for a working example (including metaboxes, permalinks, and querying): Extending Custom Post Types in WordPress 3.0 Where the details? Title only for ideas? Click the link in the post. it is great!!! Where to download? can’t wait for 3.0. Multiple domains is going to make things a lot easier to manage. Might actually get me to try BuddyPress. This might be one of the best things in WordPress so far. It could be used for adding different languages as well. Nice work! Wow Matt, thanks for spreading! Custom Post Types will be great for end clients – presenting the content in even more organized way than now. Still integrating some internationalization functions like in qtranslate would be priceless too. Thanks for sharing this great article. Konstantin’s work inspired me to take it one step further and fill the columns with dynamic content. Feel free to check it out. I am really excited about this new feature! http://www.heinencreative.com/archives/tutorials/creating-custom-post-types-in-wordpress-3-0/ Justin Tadlock wraps up custom post types: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2010/04/29/custom-post-types-in-wordpress You should check out the WP Easy Post Types plugin. It allows you to create WordPress custom post types on the fly with an easy to use interface. Then manage custom fields and categories for your post types. There are a number of benefits. For example, you can create custom fields without having to create keynames and values. Output custom types simply by using the preformatted template tag for your field or create your own. One single call to display any field in an output. Additionally, once you have created a custom field this field is now available every time you edit/create a custom post type. This feature saves you time and gets rid of the frustration associated with custom fields that cause many people not to use them. Many out of the box field types available, or create your own through the plugin API. You can download it at WordPress.org or learn more about it at http://www.wpeasyposttypes.com.
