Support » Fixing WordPress » Question about extending Custom Post Type

  • I do mainly development / FE but have just started working with WordPress and was hoping to confirm what I understand about custom post types.

    I’m developing an ebook related site for a client and thought it might be a good time to build the site for WordPress, but I’m having some difficulty with creating posts with the features I need.

    Essentially I’d like my client to create a post with

    • an image for the ‘featured’ section of the front page (the latest post would be rendered here)
    • an image for the ‘previous editions’ section of the front page (the 4 other most recent posts would be rendered in this section)
    • a different image for the single / more info page related to that ebook.

    I also need to upload and associate 1-4 ebook formats with each post.

    Do I need to make a separate post for the featured, previous, single pages for each product and then manually upload the ebook files and add them as custom fields?

    Is there a straightforward way to simply create a custom post type with 3 featured images which I can specify within the theme as well as 1-4 ebooks which I can link to within the theme?

    I apologize if I’m missing anything or if this is the wrong section, but any help is greatly appreciated. I am leaning towards just writing the code manually, but I was admittedly looking forward to letting wordpress save me some login/comments/posting development time.
