Introduction to Custom Types for Business Sites

Custom types and fields can greatly improve business WordPress sites. When you use custom types, you make it easier to manage the site’s content and you separate between content editing and design. This allows to build sites faster and to run them for years to come.

Business sites often use custom types, with their fields and taxonomy to hold:

  • Products they offer
  • Services they provide
  • Client testimonials
  • Information about their team

and much more!
