Custom Content Type - how to? (2 posts)

    I need to create my company website.
    together with the usual who-what-how-where info, we have a extensive articles/blog sections, therefore we'd like to use wordpress.

    I have some doubts thou on how can i use wp to handle other content.
    For example, we need few custom content type:
    Services, Team, Case studies, each of this with its on set of fields.

    once i have this, i would like link them to each other using taxonomy:
    for example, when i am on a specific service page, i would like to have blocks where i can see related case studies, related articles from blog, related team member, based on tags.

    Is this something that can be obtained easily with wordpress?
    I know there are some plugin to set custom content type.
    one i have this, i need to create custom widget to display the related info, decide where and when to display these.

    if it was other CMS like drupal, we could use VIEWS to create a custom Block, then place it on the desired area of the template, almost with no code.

    I dont mind writing some code, but i'd need some direction on how/where to do it.

    I just like so much better the backend of wordpress compared with drupal.

    You might want to look at how custom post types as evolved with the coming version 3.0 see http://wordpress.org/download/nightly/ to download that.

    The plugin Custom Post Type UI http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/ makes it very easy to use custom post types and custom taxonomies.
