Custom Content Types

The Custom Content Types module adds custom post types (CPTs) to your site. These CPTs allow you to add content that doesn’t necessarily fit into a post, but isn’t right for a static page either. Since this is part of Jetpack, you can even switch themes without losing these custom post types!

Portfolios

The Portfolio custom post type gives you an easy way to manage and showcase projects on your site. If your theme doesn’t support it yet, you can enable the Portfolio custom post type by activating the Custom Content Types module in your Jetpack settings. Then, go to Settings → Writing in your WordPress Dashboard and check the Portfolio Projects option under “Your Custom Content Types.”

You can then choose to display the portfolio using the portfolio shortcode ( [portfolio] ) or with a link to the portfolio in the menu.

Testimonials

The Testimonial custom post type allows you to add, organize, and display your testimonials. If your theme doesn’t support it yet, you can enable the Testimonial custom post type by activating the Custom Content Types module in your Jetpack settings. Once activated, go to Settings → Writing in your WordPress Dashboard and check the Testimonials option under “Your Custom Content Types.”

You can then choose to display testimonials using the testimonial shortcode ( [testimonials] ) or you can view a full archive of your testimonials at yourgroovydomain.com/testimonial.

Add food menus to your theme by adding the following code to your theme, during after_setup_theme:
add_theme_support( 'nova_menu_item' );

The theme Confit uses these menus, and you can download it here.

Comics

If you’d like to publish Comics on your site, you can use the Comics Post Type. Panel is a good example of a theme allowing you to publish a webcomic.

To add support to your existing theme, add the following code to your theme, during after_setup_theme:
add_theme_support( 'jetpack-comic' );
