Setting up custom post types, fields and taxonomy needed for directory sites

The first thing to do when building a directory website is to create its structure. You do this by creating custom post types, adding custom fields and using custom taxonomy to categorize your content.

Most directory sites will need:

  • Custom post types – for the items that the directory site lists (like a “car” custom post type for a car dealership site)
  • Custom fields – for the additional information that the directory items require (like a “price” field for cars)
  • Custom taxonomy – to organize the directory items (like “car type” for cars)

And, of course, Toolset lets you set-up any custom post type, field and taxonomy that you need.
