Custom post types aren’t something strictly defined. Basically it is any type of content you use in your blog. For example, WordPress comes with some default post types you’re probably familiar like blog posts, pages, attachments, navigation menus and more.

With custom post types you have the possibility to create more interesting and unusual user experience in your blog by expressing more creativity using them. Custom post types allow users to easily create and manage such things as portfolios, projects, real estate listings, event calendar, quotes, ticket system, and whatever you can imagine.

In this list I would like to share 15 useful WordPress tutorials for creating custom post types for any kind of your projects.
