Custom Post Types

Adding a new post type, for when ‘posts’ and ‘pages’ just won’t do.

add_action( 'init', 'my_new_post_types' );
function my_new_post_types() {
    $labels = array(
        'name' => _x('Hotels', 'post type general name'),
        'singular_name' => _x('Hotel', 'post type singular name'),
        'add_new' => _x('Add New', 'hotel'),

        'edit_item' => __('Edit Hotel'),
        'new_item' => __('New Hotel'),
        'view_item' => __('View Hotel'),
        'search_items' => __('Search Hotels'),
        'not_found' =>  __('No hotels found'),
        'not_found_in_trash' => __('No hotels found in Trash'), 
        'parent_item_colon' => '',
        'menu_name' => 'Hotels'    
    );
    $args = array(
