Create your own post type

The ability to create your own post type extends the functionality well beyond a regular web store. For instance, create a post type called “Events” and showcase events worth visiting in your city. Cool thing about this feature is that you also create the category taxonomy.

Once you’re done creating the post type, start working on a submission form. By creating a submission form you can allow visitors to submit events on your site. You can even charge for those submissions!

    Thanks a million for the support templatic! Special mention to Sapna and Vedran for doing such an excellent job. You guys are the best support team in the world!

    Templatic has to be the greatest theme company for me because of two reasons. 1) They have amazing, stylish, and functional themes. They already put your best interest in mind for monetization when they are making the themes, so it makes it much easier for you to get up and going. The themes just make sense. 2) Customer Support. These guys and gals are tremendous at responding back to your theme support questions. If something isn’t working properly they will figure out what’s wrong and tell you how to do it, usually with a link to a certain section in their theme guide so you can do it yourself and learn where you went wrong or if it’s a bigger issue they will make adjustments and handle it on their own. One of my problems was already fixed in an update, so it’s let’s you know they are always listening and improving on their themes. VERY EXCITED and GRATEFUL for Templatic!!!
