How To Reference Custom Taxonomy Terms (1 post)

    Problem: I'm getting a 404 Not Found message when trying to open a page containing all the entries for a particular term.

    Scenario:
    A custom content type called "video"
    Attached is a custom taxonomy also called video with terms "cash" and "cash flow"

    What I want to do is to produce the following
    My top level page is called Library and contains a link to a page that displays custom content type 'named video'. The content of the page is a list of terms from the taxonomy attached to the custom content type viz:
    - Cash
    - Cash Flow

    This result is produced using this template code:

    <h2>Video Subjects</h2>
    <p>Click to see the list of videos under a particular subject</p>
    			<?php $args_list = array(
    'taxonomy' => 'video', // Registered tax name
    			'orderby'            => 'name',
    			'style'              => '',
     			'title_li'           => __(none )
    );
    echo wp_list_categories($args_list);
    
    ?>

    When you look at the list of terms on the page each one is a link to titles attached to that particular term, so the links are:

    Simply clicking on this link produces a page not found.
    Note that I have a template titled "taxonomy-video-cash" but clicking on the link for 'cash' still produces a page not found.

    As a result I created a page with a permalink of

    http://www.example.com/library/video

    And attached the template 'taxonomy-video-cash.php

    <?php				$videoquery = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'video',  'terms' =>'cash',  'posts_per_page' => 10 ));
    
    // The Loop
    if ($videoquery->have_posts()) {
    
     while ( $videoquery->have_posts() ): $videoquery->the_post();
    	echo '<li>';
    	the_title();
    	echo '</li>';
    endwhile;
    };
    // Reset Post Data
    wp_reset_postdata();
    
    ?>

    This also causes a Page Not Found result.

    Note: I'm using the plugin 'Custom Post Type UI', with a rewrite on the Custom Post Type set to library/video

    Any suggestions on how to produce the display of titles for a particular term.

    I've done a lot of searching on this subject and the totality of advice and tutorials just seems unusually confusing since I'm very much a neophyte in using WordPress.

    Thanks
