WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

On my website, I want to display a page where I will store all my demos, which should function just like a blog (so I can add new records, edit them and specify custom meta data and list all of them on a public page), but it should independent for easier management. I have searched the web for answers or tutorials, but haven't any.

Example can be found here: http://css-tricks.com/downloads/

As you can see there there is a separate blog and the demos page function as an independent group of records, with their special metadata and I'm pretty sure there is a way of creating something like this.

It's not a separate blog, it's just the Demos page from css-tricks.com. "Independent" is a bit vague here. –  P-S Oct 8 '13 at 13:44
    
@Patrick sorry for that, I just didn't know how to describe it exactly. Anyway, your answer have answered my question. Thanks! –  Timbo_KZ Oct 8 '13 at 14:49
    
@timbo-kz It's fine, just making sure I understood you well. I added the WP_Query documentation to the answer if you want to know how to loop the custom post types in your page template. –  P-S Oct 8 '13 at 15:11

You can just create a page template and register a custom post type with its own categories, tags and pretty much everything. You then loop these custom post type entries in your custom template page.
