WordPress isn’t just a blogging platform.
It can be transformed into a serious CMS in the right hands.
I’ve heard criticisms about WordPress as a CMS, saying that it was too blog heavy. Ironically enough, I’ve seen sites add blogs that are sub-par, as they were trying to avoid the WordPress bloat.
One of the first things you can do to transform WordPress into a deeper CMS tool, is by creating Custom Post Types and Taxonomies, and there is an online tool that can help you do just that!
I wish I would have found this tool when I first started digging into this.
You see, I wanted to create a separate listing for Podcasts, while another client of mine wanted a News section, both apart from the blog. I needed the exact functionality of a blog, categories and everything, but I needed them listed separately. So, I created Custom Taxonomy and Post Types (tutorial in the works).
Using Gravity forms, Themergency (great name) created both a Taxonomy Code Generator and Custom Post Type Code Generator:
Answer the questions, complete with short definitions, and these two handy code generator’s will spit-out the code!
