    I have successfully created a custom post type in my admin area that now shows in my left hand bar but I cannot figure out how to show the posts from that custom post type?

    My custom post type is a “products” section, with about half a dozen categories. Each category has between 5 and 25 products as individual posts.

    I want each category to be a page or a post that lists all the products within that category.

    I also want the main products page to be a listing of all categories, so you navigate like this:

    Home > Products > Category > Product

    What would be the best way to do this? I would rather have all these pages by dynamic but what I have resorted to at present is creating a static products page with all the categories. Not ideal when I want to add categories on the fly.

    Are custom post types the right way to handle this? Am I on the right track?
