    Hello,

    Let's say you have a site about recipes. And a typical post will feature a recipe.

    Assume recipes come with structured data such as

    recipe name
    ingredients
    directions
    cook time
    level of ease

    In a typical web app, you'd have a db table to store data and then you'd programmatically output the structured data in the corresponding table cells to create the output layout.

    In wordpress, how do you do that with just a WYSIWYG editor? Can this be pulled off with custom post types? Is this all custom post types are all about?

    And also if a visitor ( a subscriber ) is submitting her own recipes, how does that work? How do I get that structured data? even if I were to build a web form asking for that data ( recipe name, cook time etc ) in which table do I store it? & who creates that table? i'm guessing it is not the wp_posts!

    is what I'm asking cannot be done with WP?

    MHalukK,

    It sounds like you need Magic Fields: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/magic-fields/ and for the most part this can be done.

    But that plug in only makes custom fields creation easy. right? With wp3, that's already easy.

    What I was trying to ask, where is all that data stored? In a separate table? And do we use a form builder to build the form?
