Displaying Content

The posts created in a custom post type can be viewed and located for linking in the following ways:

Viewing Single Posts
Click on the custom post type label in the main WordPress menu. Each post will have a view link listed below it.

Viewing Taxonomy Terms
If taxonomies have been added, click on the custom post type label in the main WordPress menu. Within the post type section, any taxonomies that have been created will be visible. Click on the taxonomy link, any terms added to the taxonomy will be visible on the right with a view link listed underneath the label.

Displaying Custom Post Type Content Using Page Builder

Custom post type posts (content) can be outputted in Page Builder on any given post or page using the Post Loop widget and Post Carousel widget. These are the two loop widgets currently offered by SiteOrigin. Custom post type content can be outputted via any loop widget.

Post Loop Widget

The Post Loop widget is included in Page Builder but is reliant on suitable loop templates being included with the theme in use. To insert a Post Loop widget, go to the post or page you’d like to output the custom post type content on and click on the Page Builder tab. Next, click the Add Widget button and insert the Post Loop widget. Once inserted, select a template from the drop-down list. Suitable templates are usually labeled clearly, for example, Blog or Grid. Next, click the Build posts query button to set up the Post Loop widget. Choose your custom post type from the Post type drop-down list at the top of the query builder interface.

Post Carousel Widget

The SiteOrigin Post Carousel widget is included in the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle. To insert the Post Carousel widget, go the post or page you’d like to output the custom post type content and click on the Page Builder tab. Next, click the Add Widget button and insert the SiteOrigin Post Carousel widget. Once inserted, open the widget and click the Build posts query button. Choose your custom post type from the drop-down at the top of the query builder interface.
