Creating a movie custom post type

The following shows code to add a custom post type (CPT). I would suggest using CPTUI plugin or the Pods plugin. I have used both and it makes it easier getting the code correct, and if any adjustments are needed the plugin will take care of it. I made the Post Type “Movies” and the two category taxonomies “Year Made” and “Movie Category”. I then added in a few movies.

Plugins

I usually use the plugin custom Post Type UI. As it works really well and one can easily go back and adjust. I have also used the plugin Pods.
