A content modeling workflow for planning custom post types

Subscribe to Community Blog updates

Custom post types are an essential part of the WordPress toolbox. These add-ons make updates easier for content managers, provide databases that help with content delivery and simply just allows for easy customization. These always represent a specific content type, but how much content modeling is actually done before the website development begins.

Whether approaching a redesign or brand new site, using a detailed content modeling workflow will engage both stakeholders and the design team in a content-first approach, as well as, save time and revisions at the end.

You'll learn the following:

- How to identify separate content types and build a connected content model map
- How to work with stakeholders to map each type to an audience and develop a list of attributes
- How to work with the developer to turn those attributes into CMS fields
- How to use content model worksheets and spec sheets to get content from stakeholders
