22 WordPress Custom Post Type Plugins

WordPress custom post type is the amazing feature we have seen after WordPress 3.0. It is used to display and maintain many different types of content. All the default post types (Posts & Pages) and custom created post types are stored in the wp_posts table in the database, but there is one column to make a difference between these post types and that is post_type.
