The new training course on custom types allows developers of all levels to improve their knowledge and become more efficient when building rich WordPress sites. It explains the basics to beginners and quickly moves to advanced (and powerful) techniques.

Why a course?

Custom types for WordPress is a huge subject. It starts simple. You create a custom type, add a few fields and design a template. However, once you’re familiar with the basics, you quickly realize that there’s a world of possibilities. When you’re fluent in the advanced topics, you can suddenly build amazing sites, which are outside of the reach of folks churning out “cookie cutter” websites.

Our training course on custom types will help you progress quickly from beginner to intermediate to advanced.

We’ve noticed that many of our clients, who are already using Toolset to build custom sites, are not familiar with all the possibilities. A training course will take you through the subjects quickly and efficiently, so you can become an expert.

What’s in the course?

The training course covers everything from the fundamentals of custom types to post relationships and custom searches. Each session includes a short video and text. The sessions are “bite-sized” and take only a few minutes. When you complete a chapter, you’ll gain a practical understanding of the subject and will be able to use it on your own projects.

Who needs this course?

Almost everyone who builds or wishes to build a custom WordPress site could benefit from this course. Often, we stop learning a subject when we feel that we know enough to accomplish the task at hand. However, when we don’t learn it fully, we miss out on important techniques which could help us save time and produce better results. Our course will lead you and make sure that you understand not only the principles but the practical implications of each subject.

Even if you’re planning to use custom types without Toolset, this course offers huge value. The fundamentals and concepts are the same, no matter which plugins you’re using.

How much does it cost?

Toolset clients get this training course for free. If you’re not (yet) using Toolset, you can buy our course separately (it only costs $29 USD).
