I'm a newbie in WordPress and I've just created a new custom-post type called arts. Is there a way I can create a custom page to display the 'art's custom type? The custom-post type has thumbnails which I'll be displaying on the post and 'arts'are a bit more different form other posts. Any help offered will be highly regarded.

I f you set the argument has_archive in register_post_type() to TRUE you get an archive automatically.

Depending on your slug it will be available on /arts/ probably.

To customize the look of that page use a template archive-{post_type}.php.

  • I want to customize how the page will look because it has links to images in the post meta.
