Support » Fixing WordPress » Category links for Custom Post types

  • Hi,
    I am working on a custom theme, I have page with slug ‘faq’ and a custom post type that rewrites to slug ‘faq’ so any new post will be listed under ‘faq’. There are few categories for faqs and I wanted to list all categories on faq page in a way that if I visit page it will show default category. And all links should be in format and if you select the link it will show category from that particular category.

    Right now generating category links just creates links as and if I click on it it fails to load custom post type. I have to explicitly add url query to get custom post type. Another thing I can work with is use url queries to list posts as but I am not sure which one is beneficial for SEO.

    It seems that all you need is a taxonomy instead of a custom post type or a combination of both.

    If you register a taxonomy called faq and create a template taxonomy-faq.php, the query on that template would loop through all the posts from current taxonomy term. In other words, under the url you would get all the posts with a term ‘common-questions’ from taxonomy ‘faq’ attached.

    To show a list of faq categories with that approach you would have to use get_terms() function.
