WordPress comes with a set of standard fields that make up posts and pages. This includes the title, main content, date of publishing, and others. You can then display these fields on the front-end using templates, lists of posts, and custom archive pages.
Here is a post editor with some standard WordPress fields:
- Post Title
- Post Body
- Custom Fields
- Custom Taxonomy
The following table explains the rest of the standard WordPress fields.
