Custom Post Type was introduced in WordPress 3.0 to allow the users to define different post type within a blog. For example, if you are a chef looking to open new cooking classes and also to share your recipes with others, you can define a post type call “Classes” where you announce the availability of new cooking class and another post type call “Recipe” and share your recipe with your readers.
WordPress doesn’t come with an easy way for the normal users to create custom post type, but luckily there is a useful plugin for that.
If you are still not aware, WordPress 3.1 was (finally) released on 22nd Feb 2011. The planned release was supposed to be Dec 2010, but apparently there were too many bugs to be fixed and the actual release was delayed by two months. Fortunately WordPress 3.1 is full of goodies and is definitely worth the waiting. Let’s take a look at what’s in store in WP 3.1.
One common practice for most bloggers is to internal link to other article in their blog. The usual way is to open a new tab, search for the article, manually copy the URL and link it in the WordPress text editor. As of WordPress 3.1, you can now internal link right within the text editor.
