Custom Post Type UI

Admin UI for creating custom post types and custom taxonomies in WordPress

How can I display content from a custom post type on my website?

Justin Tadlock has written some great posts on the topic: Showing Custom Post Types on your Home Page Custom Post Types in WordPress

How can I add custom meta boxes to my custom post types?

The More Fields plugin does a great job at creating custom meta boxes and fully supports custom post types: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/more-fields/

I changed my custom post type name and now I can't get to my posts

You can either change the custom post type name back to the original name or try the Post Type Switcher plugin here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-type-switcher/

I receive a 404 error when viewing custom post type content

This is usually caused if the rewrite slug was changed. To fix this issue simply visit Settings > Permalinks to flush the rewrite rules in WordPress

Will this work in previous version of WordPress

The register_post_type function was added in WordPress 2.9 so technically it should work in 2.9, but there is no admin menu UI so all post types are created and used behind the scenes.
