CREATE CUSTOM PAGE TYPES
Custom Page Type are something new. It’s similar to Custom post type but are made for Pages. You can do almost everything with a page that you could do with custom post type.
For example let’s take a Page Type say “Contact”, and we would like to show various ways in which a company can be contacted.. so we can create a page type contact-page. and define how it looks and what custom fields it would accept. So the end result may have input screen for various addresses and in ouput we can have custom styles contact page.
CREATE CUSTOM FIELDS FOR ANY Page TYPE
Custom fields are a way of adding multiple information to a custom page type, such as you can add a text box and ask user for some info like Product Name there, and later you would want to show that product name at a fixed location on the Page view. You will be able to do all this very easily. The Custom fields used are dynamic in nature. So there are various types of custom fields possible. A few have me developed and later many more will be added.
VERY EASY TO USE INTERFACE.
The interface is very easy to use and no Programming skills are required.
Custom Cascading Style Sheet(CSS) which is used for styling a document and Custom Java Script which is used for adding extra script to document can be added to each and every post type. This allows you to customize the look and feel of the content
ACCESSING CUSTOM FIELDS
Custom field created for a post type can be accessed with the use of short codes within the document.You will need to place Array wherever you want to place the value of field_name.

those custom page types are they your invention or are they integrated into wordpress ? How can I change my custom post types into cutom page types .. does that make sense ?
yep they are my invention but it really doesn’t make any sense in converting post types to page types ..
I also got confused here. Does this Page Type simply means a Page Template with Custom Fields?
Yes it does. I made it because I wanted a simple form that enabled users to create complex contact pages UI without much HTML knowledge.
