[Custom Content Type Manager] Why don't I have Tags or Categories? (3 posts)

    When I create new content types, I don't have the ability to add tags or categories. As much as I like the potential of this plug-in, I need tags and categories for all posts. Is there a fix?

    I kind of have the same question.

    I am building a menu content type. Simple... Custom fields of price/section.

    I want a page that will bring in all the posts on one page and sort them by section. Cocktails, Beers, Wines, etc. I want to print out the section header once and then print all the posts under that section, then the next section and so forth. How can I achieve this?

    Thanks,

    Buddy

    Version 0.8.8 implements support for tags and categories on all custom post types.

    Please submit all bug reports here: http://code.google.com/p/wordpress-custom-content-type-manager/issues/list

    The WP forums here are not particularly useful to me as a developer for notifying me of problems. In any case, I do not check them regularly and I don't comb through them to discover issues with the plugin, so please file official bug reports here: http://code.google.com/p/wordpress-custom-content-type-manager/issues/list

    Buddyq: your question is really one of how to work with WP themes. WP does peg a theme file for each type of taxonomical term, e.g. "taxonomy-collection.php" that is used when you want to list posts that have been tagged with a certain taxonomy.

    E.g. you might have something like this in your taxonomy-collection.php theme file:

    $args = array(
    				'taxonomy' => 'collection',
    				'order'=>'DESC'
    			);
    			$collections = get_categories($args);
