Drupal 7 custom fields on default content types

asked Aug 12, 2013 in Website Builder by DruNew (1,930 points)
Hi there
I was wondering if I should add custom fields to my default Article content types or should I create a custom content type instead? I am looking for the best practice. Can anyone please tell me which and why?
Thanks all

It doesn't make a difference if you extend your article content type with the extra fields. I don't think using Article content type as  default is good though. Also you need to first decide what you want this extra field for. You can find many modules that add fields for specific functions
