I am using a plugin called cms-press which allows me to create custom post_types with related taxonomies. That part works perfectly.
I then tried verve meta boxes plugin, so that I could add in custom meta boxes for the post_type, but it does not work, as it only recognizes posts/pages
So I tried custom-field-template today. It installed correctly, and I even noticed the input area:
Custom Post Type (comma-deliminated):
I entered in my post_type name there and sure enough all is working. I can go into my new admin UI for my custom post_type and the custom field template shows up perfectly, accepting data input.
Where I am stuck
I cannot figure out how to assign custom templates to the post_type 'custom' on the front end of the site
Basically I am working on creating a new 'sermons' area where the template would look completely different than the rest of the site.
In the past I used a custom plugin that allows me to assign templates to categories, and that works perfectly
on my admin post_type input screen there is no choice for categories. This means I cannot assign the post to a category which in turn is assigned to a given template, both for the archives and single view.
How do I assign an archive and single template to my custom post_type?
