Simple Custom Post Type Archives
Categories not showing up (2 posts)

    Actually, I'm using 3.0.3

    Maybe I'm not truly understanding the purpose of the plug-in, but I was hoping that I would be able to create an Archives menu that would pull up only the archives of a particular category. I help run a church website, so for instance we'd like to have an archives menu for the "Sermons" category, and one for the "Announcements" category instead of the default Archives menu, which lumps all of the categories together? Will this plug-in help me accomplish that?

    If so, I'm having trouble figuring out how. I have installed Custom Post Type Archives 1.0.1. However, under the Settings > Custom Post Archives, I see only three options: post, page, and attachment. Is there something that I need to do to get the categories to show up in there? I have verified that the categories all have slugs, and I have updated the permalinks page, but am at a loss about what to do next. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    I'm also having this problem.

    I have a custom post type called 'Accommodation'. The slug is 'accommodations' as there is an accommodation page already.

    I have created a category 'Accommodation Type', and a sub-category 'Boutique Hotels'. How do I display the category archive for 'Boutique Hotels'?

    I've tried:

  3. /accommodations/accommodation-type/boutique-hotels/
  4. /accommodations/boutique-hotels/
  5. /boutique-hotels/ brings up a test post using the built in posts function but none of my custom posts.

    Please help! Thanks.
