How to create a second posts page which client can update

  • # December 8, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Bit of a wordpress novice and so just wanted to know the best way to do this.

    I am currently creating a wordpress site for a client. They have a Latest News section which is the primary ‘blog’/posts page. The sidebar also displays the latest blog post.

    Now what I would like to do is create a Special Offers page, which works the same as the blog post page, displaying the latest offers, and which the client can update easily through the admin. I would also like to feature the latest special offer in the sidebar.

    What would be the best way to do this, as I am assuming you can only have one main posts page?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Actually, you can have as many as you’d like. What you’re looking for is called “Custom Post Types”. You can have a “Special Offers” post page, “News” post page, etc.

    Here is the plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-ui
