Just a question for people who have more experience with WordPress,
We can create unlimited Post Types but we only have 7 different Post Formats?
And prob. no website need all those 7 Post Formats at the same time but why the .... can't we change the names of those Post Formats at the admin?
At this time i'm building a theme for someone who is very new to websites and has never work with any CMS.
So on the Pages side of the CMS i build a few Page templates that he can pick from when writing a new Page. He now has an option to go for Wide, Small and Medium-layout to make Pages in. (very easy)
But now we go to the Posts side of the CMS.
We don't have a drop down option for picking a layout to post in, so i just changed Gallery view to a Wide layout, Standard to a Small layout and i kept Aside to a 'Medium' layout that only place some information no link in heading.
Very cool everything works.. only ONE PROBLEM i can't change the names Gallery, Standard and Aside in the Admin. How could you tell someone you have just build a website for that if he wants to Post a new Blog Post he should choice Gallery to get a Wide layout?
I think that would be the same if i made a CMS in Chinese language for this person.
So i start searching about it and i found Custom Post Types.
That looks even more friendly because it duplicates the Post section in the admin and this way you could get a Wide Layout section Posts, Small Layout section Posts and Medium Layout section Posts at the Admin menu (left, top)
Everything done and i changed all the template files but after that i found out that the Permalinks structure are your worst nightmare when it comes to Custom Post Types.
These are my my Permalinks setting of my WordPress CMS.
When i installed Custom Post Type it went to this.
When i did turn off the Rewrite option in the Custom Post Type i got this:
I don't want this, i want my Permalinks structure to show up between my domain and post_name
example.com/%year%/%monthnum%/post_name of the Custom Post Type
Why is this not possible?
