Post types in WordPress Everything You Need to Know

Post types are one of the less understood and highly-underrated elements of WordPress. As we go through the different personalities of it, you will know it’s more than an integral part, it’s what gives life to the WordPress software.

If you’re thinking that I’m taking it too far with the above statement, let’s hold it for a minute. WordPress Post types are what enable you to distinguish between different content types on your website. For example, posts, pages, attachments, etc. It is this feature that transforms WordPress from a blogging platform to a CMS!

If you wish to become a WordPress developer or just want to know All-Thing-Everything WordPress, like us, then you have to know post types. Because from here on things start getting spicier and WordPress even more intriguing and glamorous.


Index What is a WordPress post type? What is the need of post types? What are default post types in WordPress? What do post types offer? Conclusion FAQs What is WordPress Post Type? Well, post type is a term that describes different types of content on a WordPress website.

You must wonder why it is called post type and not something else.

Umm, I’ll just put out what I think is the reason (in my whole and sole opinion!). We all know WordPress’s journey from a repository to a blogging platform. The term that is most relevant and used in a blog is what – Post!

So, as WordPress evolved and different types of content came into the picture. Yes, they all have their separate names but one common name that stuck with everyone….you know it…..Post! That is how different content on a WordPress website got the name.. Post Type.

So, now when you say posts or attachment, the ideal or technical way of saying it is Post Type: ‘post’ and Post Type: ‘attachment’.

Why are Post Types needed? Let’s understand why WordPress post types are so important, and I can’t stop fussing over it. You know, without representing different types of content on a website like articles, photos, videos, portfolio, etc. there is no website.

But, in addition to being a website there is no sort of content management without different types of content, right?

And that’s where WordPress post type supports the whole software and redefines it into a CMS from a blogging platform. Don’t worry bloggers, it is still one of the best and most popular blogging platforms, with lots of other gizmos and features! ????

As WordPress evolved into a CMS, this led to the foundation of it going into the direction of becoming a website builder.

Post types are needed because they allow you to have different types of content on your website. Imagine a website, where you can have just articles, no images, videos, or any other content of any sort.

Moreover, you can have custom post types, i.e., create post types as per your requirement. For example, a blog can have a separate post type, like reviews, portfolio, etc. Thus, enabling you to completely customize your website and each content available
