WordPress features two basic content types by default: posts and pages. Both of them work in completely distinct ways, despite having a lot in common in terms of design.
Simply explained, posts are periodic pieces of content that are released at different intervals, whereas pages are for more static content. A page, for example, is frequently used for contact forms, business information and locations, and “About” pages…non-changing content.
In WordPress, posts are normally displayed in chronological order, with the most recent appearing first.
Marco demonstrates how to use the Custom Post Type UI plugin in this webinar. It allows you to create custom post types and taxonomy for almost any purpose in WordPress. It’s also one of the most often used plugins among developers.

In actuality, you can make a field out of almost any form of content. Images, films, radio buttons, and much more are included.
