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
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?
