You need to explain the difference between a Page and Custom Post Type.

Post types in WP:
– Post Type: post
– Post Type: page
– Post Type: custom post type ex. event

So newly created Events custom post type is not a “page”. It’s independent, special container for events.

If you have a Events page (not custom post type) and your clients are getting confused, then explain to them that Events (under Pages) is a landing page, and Events under Admin Bar (custom post types) are for managing individual events.

Do you hand out any sort of guide to clients? Or maybe video tutorial? Do you demo at least once the site is completed?
