This can be added directly to your functions, PHP file or you can include an external file that contains this code to your functions.php

Step 1: The below code will add the Custom menu section and the editor section of it.

< ?php

add_action('init', 'portfolio_register');

function portfolio_register() {

$labels = array(
'name' => _x('Portfolio', 'post type general name'),
'singular_name' => _x('Portfolio Item', 'post type singular name'),
'add_new' => _x('Add New', 'Portfolio item'),
'add_new_item' => __('Add New Portfolio Item'),
'edit_item' => __('Edit Portfolio Products Item'),
'new_item' => __('New Portfolio Item'),
'view_item' => __('View Portfolio Item'),
'search_items' => __('Search Portfolio'),
'not_found' => __('Nothing found'),
'not_found_in_trash' => __('Nothing found in Trash'),
'parent_item_colon' => ''

$args = array(
'labels' => $labels,
'public' => true,
'publicly_queryable' => true,
'show_ui' => true,
'query_var' => true,
'menu_icon' => get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/includes/icon_03.png',
'rewrite' => true,
'capability_type' => 'post',

add_meta_box("credits_meta", "Shipping Options & Price", "credits_meta", "Portfolio", "normal", "low");
function credits_meta() {
global $post;
$custom = get_post_custom($post->ID);
