    Hi,
    I have setup a custom post type that has two custom taxonomies associated with it. The code below is in the themes function file. The custom post type is for a series of products (mha-products) which will be categorised by type (product_type) and application (applications).

    Under products i will display a list of categories before drilling down into the list of products. Applications will display a list of all applications then link to a page about the individual application.

    Within my theme i have the following template files:

    • archive-mha-products.php
    • taxonomy-applications.php
    • taxonomy-product_type.php
    • single-mha-products.php

    I am currently getting a "page not found" for /applications but everything is working correctly for /products.

    Heres the products section and heres the applications section

    Any help appreciated.

    Functions code:

    //
    // Custom Post Types
    // ================================================== -->
    //
    	function create_my_post_types() {
      	//Post type name
    		register_post_type( 'mha-products',

    				'labels' => array(

    Hey,

    Just a couple ideas for troubleshooting:

    1. Have you tried removing products_type and doing just applications and checking if it works alone?
    2. I notice your slug for products is 'products/type' and applications is 'applications'. Why is it 'products/type' for products?

    Just place the taxonomies function above the custom post type.

    Even I was facing the same issue and the solution by michelabdo worked perfectly.

    I will like to know how it works. Why do we have to place custom taxonomy function above custom post type?
