Custom Post Type UI
[resolved] Making custom posts work with categories? (5 posts)

    Just installed the plugin, trying to play around with it. One thing: can't get the custom posts to show up under categories.

    I create a custom post type, say Activities. And I want to categorize different activities with WordPress categories. Can I do that? I tried checking the "Categories" option under "Built-in Taxonomies", and then categorizing an Activity, but it does not show up under that category, only the standard posts do.

    What am I doing wrong? Is it even possible? Or do I need to edit category.php?

    Looking for same functionality on a different plugin. Still, having the same problem: I have a FAQ custom post type and I want different categories. However the custom post type doesn't show posts under different categories I have setup.

    If anyone knows how to fix this, it would be very helpful.

    I have the same problem boys. I've contacted the developer from his own blog. I hope he replies soon

    ok after giving it some thought, I think it's because the 'categories' and 'tags' that come with the plugin as default are actually to be treated as custom taxonomies :) which is unfortunate but also makes sense.
