I'm looking to create custom admin options/menu/fields (I'm not positive on the correct terminology) and would like some guidance. I found a post here which does speak about it in the answer: Tips for using WordPress as a CMS?

I would like to create a field like the 'Attorneys' menu shown in @MikeSchinkel 's answer.

If you know a page that has instructions on best practise to create this could you please link me?

I have searched the net for hours on end for a solution and the best I came up with is the 'Custom Post Type UI' (https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/) plugin which does not give me the flexibility I need.

Thank you in advance!

Advanced Custom Fields and Pods are plugins that both deal with custom fields.


You can easily create your own custom post type with a generator like this. http://generatewp.com/post-type/
