I plan on skipping the Posts post type once and for all. This is a brand new portal. It will have 100s of thousands of content in the form of articles, multimedia, and links. Instead of Posts, I will be using a custom post type called "Articles." Similarly, for my video, audio, and picture posts, I will be using another CPT called "Multimedia."
I'm doing this to bring a one standard across all actions that is anytime we post anything, that's a CPT. That helps me deal with urls, Admin UI, who has control over what, what taxonomies to show when, and all that.
- how do you get rid of the post menu on the admin ui?
- any issues of skipping the post type and not using it at all?
