In WordPress, a “post type” is a way of organizing and categorizing content. By default, WordPress has two post types: posts and pages.
A “post” is a type of content that is typically displayed in reverse chronological order on your blog’s homepage and archive pages. Posts are meant for timely content such as news, events, updates, and articles.
In addition to these default post types, WordPress also allows you to create custom post types such as portfolios, team profiles, chats, and so on.. This can be useful if you have content that doesn’t fit into the post or page categories, such as a portfolio, a product catalog, or a recipe database.
To create a custom post type in WordPress, you can use code or a plugin. Once you create a custom post type, you can then use custom templates and taxonomies to display and organize your content.
