WP Document Revisions
Displaying Custom Taxonomies (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I am using Document Revisions to manage and display meeting documents and some fairly static documents. I have created 2 custom taxonomies within Document Revisions, meeting-documents & group-documents. I am trying to get them to display on separate pages but I either can't get the shortcode right or it won't do what I want it to.
    I have created the custom taxonomies using the TYPES plugin and linked them to the Document post-type. I can add various documents under the custom taxonomies and the categories therein but I can't then create a page that will just display posts from the group-documents taxonomy.

    I have been trying this :
    [documents numberposts=-1 tax="group-document"] but to no avail.

    Any ideas welcome

    Regards

    Mark

    Hi,
    you can use the normal tags or categories fur articles. To enable this for the documents just drop this at the bottom of your theme's functions.php file:

    add_action('init', 'docs_add_default_boxes');

    function docs_add_default_boxes() {
    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('category', 'document');
    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('post_tag', 'document');
    }

    Then you are able to give categories or tags to each document and show them with shortcode in this way:

    [documents numberposts=-1 category_name="meeting-documents"]

    Thats it.

    Regards

    Krivo,

    Thanks for the info. I added the suggested lines into the code and it worked so thanks for that. However having added a document in a specific category and display it on the correct page, when I try to view the document through the page I get a 404 error - document not found.
    What's going on?

    Regards

    hi Mark,

    dont know, had the info from here.

    404 error indicate that something is wrong with functions.php. Whitch Theme are you using? With 2011 it works very well...

    Krivo,

    I'm currently using Weaver 2. I'll try switching to 2011 and see if it works any better.

    Thanks

    Hmm, I tried switching my theme and that didn't work.
    I've checked to see if the files were uploading correctly and they seem to be there.

    What I did notice was that if I select a document from the widget then it opens it in the editor fine. However, when I try to access the document from the webpage it just doesn't find it.

    The website is http://www.benrhyddingscoutsandguides.co.uk/exec and the documents can be found under the Meeting Documents Menu item under April 2012

    Regards
