Custom Post Type Not Working (2 posts)

    I am making a new theme and need a custom post type for "Books". I used this website to generate the custom post type code for the functions.php file.

    While the list of "Books" works fine, for some reason I keep getting a 404 error for the single "Books" page. I followed the instructions on the WordPress Codex site in terms of naming the file (single-mj_books.php) but it still isn't working.

    Here is my functions.php code:

    class mj_books {
    
    	function mj_books() {
    		add_action('init',array($this,'create_post_type'));
    	}
    
    	function create_post_type() {
    		$labels = array(
    		    'name' => 'Books',
    		    'singular_name' => 'Book',
    		    'add_new' => 'Add New',
    		    'all_items' => 'All Books',
    		    'add_new_item' => 'Add New Book',
    		    'edit_item' => 'Edit Book',
    		    'new_item' => 'New Book',
    		    'view_item' => 'View Book',
    		    'search_items' => 'Search Books',
    		    'not_found' =>  'No Books found',
    		    'not_found_in_trash' => 'No Books found in trash',
    		    'parent_item_colon' => 'Parent Books:',
    		    'menu_name' => 'Books'
    		);
    		$args = array(
    			'labels' => $labels,
    			'description' => "",
    			'public' => true,
    			'exclude_from_search' => true,
    			'publicly_queryable' => true,
    			'show_ui' => true,
    			'show_in_nav_menus' => true,
    			'show_in_menu' => true,
    			'show_in_admin_bar' => true,
    			'menu_position' => 20,
    			'menu_icon' => null,
    			'capability_type' => 'post',
    			'hierarchical' => true,
    			'supports' => array('title','editor','thumbnail'),
    			'has_archive' => false,
    			'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'books'),
    			'query_var' => true,
    			'can_export' => true
    		);
    		register_post_type('mj_books',$args);
    	}
    }
    
    $mj_books = new mj_books();

    Is there something I am doing wrong? Please help. Thanks!
