Okay, I’m working on the site http://antropologisk.dk and have been using the Genesis framework for a few months – it’s absolutely amazing how easy it made my WordPress development!
So, I wanna do things even smarter on my site. Often I need to make custom lists, like these:
or pages who output the same content over and over again, like the pages linked to in the lists above, here is one for reference:
I’ve been looking in to Custom Post Types to do this stuff, but only managed to do simple stuff as Landing Pages, or something filled up with widgets – like the home.php for most of your Child Themes.
The people we show on the list mentioned above are all registered users on the site and we have filled out a bunch of information on their user profiles (To be shown in an advanced authorbox on their posts). So now I really wanna try making these pages into dynamic generated custom posts. Making my days as webmaster more efficient as the site is growing rapidly!
I guess I have to pull some metadata from somewhere and stuff like that – but I have kind of a hard time figuring out how to.
So, do you have any super tutorial on this, a link to the perfect plugin suiting my needs or anything else guiding me onwards, I would very much appreciate it.
I think I’ve covered most of it – but do ask all that you want if you need clearance on anything.
Thanks in advance

You could use a plugin, but I think you’ll be better off in the long run by learning how to actually write and use the code for CPTs.
I’d start in the Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Post_Types
And then have a look at these:
