Custom Post Types

We’ve created special post types for a variety of uses. You can access these post types on the left-hand side in the Dashboard.

People: use for any listings of people; most commonly staff members

Blog Layout: most commonly used for sharing news stories; these stories can be fully told within your site or, if the story is told elsewhere (such as on news.wustl.edu) should include a short blurb and a link to the full story

Item Layout:

Quotes: short comments that fall under a similar category in order to make sense as a user scrolls through them; examples are “fun facts” and brief testimonial quotes from students

Partners: collaborating organizations or sponsors – for ideal presentation, each should have a logo or image to represent it along with an external website

Events: calendar items with date and time
