Custom post types are new post types you can create. A custom post type can be added to WordPress via the register_post_type() function. This function allows you to define a new post type by its labels, supported features, availability and other specifics.

Note that you must call register_post_type() before the admin_menu and after the after_setup_theme action hooks. A good hook to use is the init hook.

Here’s a basic example of adding a custom post type:

Add this code in your function.php file

add_action( 'init', 'movies' );
function create_post_type() {
	register_post_type( 'movies',
		array(
			'labels' => array(
				'name' => __( 'Products' ),
				'singular_name' => __( 'Product' )
			),
		'public' => true,
		'has_archive' => true,
		)
	);
}

Example :

$args = array( 'post_type' => 'movies', 'posts_per_page' => 10 );
$loop = new WP_Query( $args );
while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post();
	the_title();
	echo '<div class="entry-content">';
	the_content();
	echo '</div>';
endwhile;
