[resolved] Edit Flow Budget Not Displaying All Posts (3 posts)

    Hi! I just got my hands on the Edit Flow 0.6 update, and the changes are awesome! It also confirms one of my worst fears: I think something strange is up with custom post types on our site.

    I don't know if you can help me or not, but I needed to start somewhere -- so don't feel bad if you have no idea what I'm talking about, or can't spare the time to help me! No hard feelings will ensue.

    Here's the deal:
    We use custom post types for everything, with lots of extra metadata -- it's made it convenient for our authors. For reference, there are only five custom types we use: 'School & Community', 'Around the Web', 'Book Review', 'Music Review', 'Movie Review', and 'Extra'.

    When I updated the plugin, I was tickled to death to see all of the Types represented in the Story Budget section, but here's the kicker -- it only shows posts from 2008-2009; nothing recent.

    So, I have a theory -- and I guess I'm hoping you can give me some insight into the inner workings of these types, and how I might start to fix things. The theory is this: we've used the more-fields and more-types plugins (http://more-plugins.se/plugins/more-types/) since about 2008 to create custom post types. When we upgraded to WordPress 3.0, I ended up re-doing all the custom types (still using more-types, but starting from scratch), and it seems that that may be where the "appear in Story Budget" line is drawn, perhaps.

    My question? To your knowledge, is there anything in the underpinnings of Edit Flow that I could look into to see why I'm experiencing this behavior? How is it determining which posts to show in the Budget -- which are legitimate post types?

    Again, I realize I may likely have to take this up with the makers of the "more-x" plugins; just trying to gather some clues. I appreciate any ideas you can send my way!

    Hey Jeff,
    Great to hear you like v0.6!

    The admission right off the bat is that Edit Flow doesn't yet support custom post types. We recognize how valuable this is and it's high on our list of priorities. As such, this is the reason your current custom post types don't show up on the story budget.

    To answer your question about more-types, I suspect the plugin was using the standard WordPress post type previously to build your custom post types. If this was the case, then they'd show up in the story budget.

    Custom post type support will be coming soon... stay tuned!

    Cheers,

    Daniel

    Cool, thanks -- we'll hang on. Just relieved to hear I don't need to totally reconfigure our blog setup (again!)
