WP Publication Archive
Categories not properly working (2 posts)

    Eric, I have categories used for only publications and if I click on the category link on the sidebar, no publications display.

    I'd like to be able to create a menu structure that uses the categories but I'm unable to.

    If I include a shortcut to a category in a page, it works fine. For example:
    [wp-publication-archive categories="technical-documents"]

    But going to the category URL directly does not work. For example:
    http://example.com/category/library-publications/technical-documents/

    As a workaround, I'm having to create individual pages for each, and including the shortcut in each page, and on the sidebar I'm hiding the categories that are used just for publications. It's certainly not ideal but it works.

    Correct, and this is a feature (hopefully) coming in a future version. The regular category archives are generated by your theme and, by default, only list posts - not any of the custom post types registered by plugins.
