Installed Taxonomies and Post Types

Taxonomies and post types

Two major building blocks in the WordPress environment are taxonomies and post types.

  • Taxonomy. A grouping of post types, such as categories and tags.
  • Post types. With post types, WordPress creates a distinction in different content types. For example, by default WordPress has different post types for “posts”, “pages”, “attachments”, etc.

MAS Videos creates a few different posts types and a couple of taxonomies to group those post types.
