StageHand uses two main types of content: Custom Post Types and Content Blocks.
Custom Post Types
WordPress evolved from a blogging platform at its inception into the robust platform it is today. Because of this WordPress by default comes with the post type, Posts.
Developers can also create what are called custom post types (CPTs), which can be tailored to a client’s needs. In the StageHand template, we’ve created three custom post types: Productions, People, and Callouts. Custom post types act like categories for your content.
A benefit of custom post types is that you only need to change a post’s content in a single spot! Although content from a CPT post is located in one spot, that content can then be pulled into several elements throughout your StageHand site.
Content blocks are quite literally blocks of content. They can be customized, duplicated, or reordered on any page or post throughout your site.
StageHand provides the 16 different content blocks listed below. Click on a content block to learn more, see examples, and view a training video walking you through the fields.
