Alright, basically I have a few questions about the capabilities of custom post types.
I'm setting up a store per this guide: http://mondaybynoon.com/2010/08/09/wordpress-custom-post-types-phpurchase-cart-part-2/
I have PHPurchase installed with products. I've setup the Store custom post type and I've setup a taxonomy called "Product Categories" with a few options. Basically, I want people to go to the main store page (just a page) that links to the different "Product Category" pages. But when I add a new "Product Category" per the taxonomy where do I go to see all the posts that are in that specific "Product Category?" I've looked up the term_id in the database and tried going to "mysite.com/?cat=term_id" and it doesn't work. I'm getting really frustrated when I know I shouldn't be. I just assumed that once I set these up they'd work just like posts/pages do already in wordpress and they'd follow the same structure but apparently not.
For instance I have a custom post type "Store" with the page "Test Product" and a page id of 1171. This link doesn't work: "mysite.com/?page_id=1171" nor does this one: "mysite.com/?p=1171" but this one does: "mysite.com/?post_type=Store&?p=1171." Why does it do that? I know enough about PHP to write a script into the category display that will modify the links but I can't get the categories to display. It's frustrating.
Hopefully I'm not being too confusing.
