I would like to create a custom post type, but all the tutorials I've found are geared towards making a brand new one and creating meta boxes from scratch. Whereas all I would like to do is copy an existing and add one or two extra entities.
I would like to go through the motions of creating a new post type because it'll show up in the admin menu as a separate entity as you would expect, but I would like this custom post type to use pretty much all of the meta boxes associated with a normal 'post' type, plus one or two more I'd add.
How could I duplicate the post type for 'post'? How could I go about making these adjustments?
