Custom Post Archives
Custom Posts in News Ticker (2 posts)

    I'm using Custom Post Archives and RP News Ticker to display latest posts in a category.

    But something strange happens when I want to display custom posts: they don't show in the ticker on the home page, but they do show (in the ticker) when I choose a tag in the tag cloud.

    That tells me that both plugins work fine, but for some reason the custom posts are not included in the categories when the home page is displayed. Any ideas? Perhaps I should rewrite some snippet of code or tell the ticker to use another feed?

    The Custom Post Archives plugin will include custom posts in requests where there is no specific post type specified if there are custom posts showing in the current page's default query.

    ^ Wow - that reads back about as convoluted as I thought it would. The short of it is, though, that this added logic was able to address a lot of issues that the WordPress core has either not seen or intentionally ignored during their custom post implementation in 3.0. I'm guessing ignored, as they haven't fixed any of it in 3.1.

    However, that doesn't address the issue at hand - and it is and issue. I'll be doing some testing later on to see if I can find a reasonable work-around, and will let you know if I find a fix - which will be included in the next update.

    Thanks for your patience!
