custompress help

Hey I’m really new to custom post types and I’m a little lost on how to display them on my theme.

I am going to be hardcoding them into my theme.

The instructions seem to make sense only they don’t consider those of us that are new to custom post types..

So if I create a custom post type called “featured” and in it I have my regualr post stuff (title, content, featured image) and a couple custom fields such as “title” and “style” how do I retreive all that information.

The only think i see is this shortcode

[custom_fields_block]

How does that know that I’m getting the featured custom post type.. I’m guessing i need to add something like this [custom_fields_block id="something goes here"] but how is that structured? where do i find that information? I”m a little lost. Thanks in advance for your help.
