I am trying to define a custom content type, more exactly I want to create some controls in a content type for a slider that I will show on the home page custom template.

What I would like to know if it's possible to make the content type to don't have a view (a actual page where it would show up).

When register your CPT, to make the content type don't have a view, you cant set publicly_queryable to false. According to the Codex, "If you set this to FALSE, you will find that you cannot preview/see your custom post (return 404)."
