Create Custom Post Type extending "Links" type (2 posts)

    I'd like to create a custom post type which avoids creating a post single page. That by nature is not a "post" but it can be done with custom post types (as far as I know). "Links" (under "media" in the dashboard) are closer to what I'd like for this type, containing:

    • A name
    • A URL
    • A description
    • A category
    • A posted date
    • An expiry date
    • A rating
    • A success rate

    This is for a coupon database.

    I want to emphasize that I know I could create a template which doesn't link to single pages, but I want a post type which avoids the creation of a single page all together (like a link). I'm trying to avoid creating a plugin which just deals with it's own table for the coupon DB.

    In case other people would like to know what I did, I'm using WP Alchemy to create a full custom post type for coupons. You can hide the default editor and set everything up pretty easily and it's all explained here:
