Publications (Post Type)

Tags WordPress

This is a content entry guide for adding new publications to your site. This feature will also allow users to filter publications by the following

  • Publication type (Journal, Book, Article, etc)
  • Author
  • Year

Using this post type will also give you the ability to create feeds on pages that filter out publications based on the filters mention above. For example, I can create a page that only shows publications written by a specific author.


How to Add a new Publication

1. Login to your wordpress site

2. In the dashboard, look to the left hand column and click on "Publications" (as seen below)

** If you cannot see Publications in the left hand column, please request to activate it

3. Once the page loads, click the button "Add New"
