We can really extend the “CMS” abilities of WordPress with just a couple of plugins: Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Types UI.
With these installed, we can create brand new content types that make more sense for the sites we work on. No sense being stuck with “Posts” and “Pages”. On Jeff’s site, we could really use “Events” and “Homepage Slides” – and give those types the fields that make sense.
What do you think about Wp Types plugin?
