    I am using a shortcode like:
    [catlist post_type="services" tags="autism" posts_morelink="learn more"]

    The problem is that I am sharing one tag taxonomy with 3 custom post types. I want to do this so that I can easily look at all items on the site having to do with “Autism”. (Just saying that the shared taxonomy is on purpose – I don’t want to have to maintain 3 of them)

    This shortcode “works” in that it finds the items tagged with autism, BUT, it doesn’t not find the CPT “services” AND items tagged with “autism” which is the behavior I would expect.

    Is there another way to get the items by CPT and tags?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello @wputler

    The behaviour you expect is what the plugin should return. I tested your issue but couldn’t reproduce what you are describing. The plugin seems to be filtering by CPT and tags correctly.

    From looking at your shortcode I think the culprit might be post_type="services". The post_type parameter expects a CPT slug which in most cases is singular. Try it with post_type="service".

    services is correct. Here’s a test page using just services and then services with autism:

    And it has the shortcode:

    [catlist post_type=services]

    You can see it just pulls the services.

    Then further down the page:
    [catlist post_type=services tags="autism"]
    Show the services tagged with autism, but also the team members and the posts.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks for clarifying.

    This shouldn’t be happening and I’m unable to reproduce this in testing environment.

    At this point I recommend the traditional WordPress debugging process:

    1. Make sure you have the latest versions of WP and LCP installed
    2. Enable debug mode in wp-config.php and make sure there are no errors displayed on your test page
    3. Disable all plugins but the LCP plugin.
    4. Switch to a default theme
    5. Check if the issue still exists. If it does, let me know. If it doesn’t:
    6. Start enabling your installed plugins (and theme) one by one. Before each element is enabled, check if your issue occurred.
    7. Let me know which plugin (or maybe theme) triggered the issue

    It’s this plugin:

    Thanks for all your help. I believe that plugin is resetting the query AFTER you create it.

    I may just have to add the tag taxonomy to the pages manually instead of using this plugin.

    I’ve notified the author.

    Good, glad you found the guilty plugin.

    You don’t have to uninstall this plugin. I had a quick look at it and to make it compatible with LCP you should add this line to your child theme’s functions.php file:

    function tagpages_display_tagged_pages_archive() {}
