Custom Post Type = Page; show in Menu? (3 posts)

    I have a custom post type called "Artwork". Works great!

    I now want to create custom "Gallery" pages so that I can specify search criteria for how each Gallery page displays. These would be custom posts with a capability_type = "page". I want to place these Gallery pages into the menu.

    There are two issues I have run into:

    1) the "page template" selection is not showing up on the edit page even though I have supports = "page-attributes" enabled.

    2) These new Galleries are not showing up in Appearance->Menus even though I have specified "show_in_nav_menus=true.

    Am I missing some extra setting that is required to make these custom post types truly into pages?

    If you know of tutorials for this online, point me toward them please, I haven't found any yet.

    I've got the following specification for Gallery:

    function gallery() {
        $args = array(
        'label' => __('Galleries'),
        'singular_label' => __('Gallery'),
        'public' => true,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'capability_type' => 'page',
        'hierarchical' => true,
        'rewrite' => true,
        'supports' => array('title', 'author', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'page-attributes'),
        'show_in_nav_menus' => true
        register_post_type( 'gallery' , $args );
    add_action("admin_init", "gallery_init");
    function gallery_init(){
      add_meta_box("gallery-meta", "Limit Gallery to...",
           "gallery_meta", "gallery", "side", "default");
    function gallery_meta(){
       global $post;
       $custom = get_post_custom($post->ID);
       $gallery_category = $custom["gallery_category"][0];
       <select name="gallery_category">
         <option value="0">Select Category</option>
              $categories=  get_categories();
              foreach ($categories as $category) {
                $option = '<option value="' . $category->cat_id . '"';
                if ($gallery_category == $category->cat_id) $option .= ' selected>';
                else $option .= '>';
                $option .= $category->name;
                $option .= '</option>';
                echo $option;
    <?php }
    add_action('save_post', 'save_gallery');
    function save_gallery() {
      global $post;
      if ( defined('DOING_AUTOSAVE') && DOING_AUTOSAVE )
        return $post->ID;
      update_post_meta($post->ID, "gallery_category", $_POST["gallery_category"]);

    Your help is greatly appreciated

    I have the same problem :
    "1) the "page template" selection is not showing up on the edit page even though I have supports = "page-attributes" enabled."

    Anyone have an idea about that ?

    I found this :

    It does the trick by adding a new meta box...
    Hope this is helpful.
