Project: why not use normal WordPress posts as “custom post type”
I have been playing with this idea for a long time: Why not use normal WordPress posts as “custom post type”? We tend to declare a custom post type, for example “product” or “vacancy” or “rental”, and add functionality like categories, tags, etc. to that post type. We add custom fields to the post type since it displays custom information and we create Gutenberg blocks that display the the post type.
All of this can be done with a normal post! Another advantage is that you can use the default WordPress Gutenberg blocks and/or WordPress plugins that extend the normal posts functionality.
So I started a project to make a website and use normal posts as custom post type. The idea was to have posts in different categories and use the category to differentiate the posts.
