  • Resolved bcoyour



    I’ve used this plugin to create several custom post types on my site, which worked very well. Then I went to make the site live which involves switching from a temporary url, an ip address (12.345.678.90/~sample/), to my final domain ( I’ve done this many times and it requires me to switch the to primary urls under “Settings” > “General” (WordPress address (URL), and Site address (URL)). The final step I do is to run a sql query to replace the ip address with the final domain, so that all the URLs on the final site are clean and ready to go.

    I did this successfully and the new site is live, everything works on the front-end and back-end of the site. Except the custom post types don’t show up in the admin area anymore. The custom post types are still in the database and showing up on the front-end of the site, but GD custom posts and taxonomies tool doesn’t see them anymore, and they don’t show up on the left navigation.

    Any thoughts on what would be tied to a URL switch that would make these custom post types disappear on the back-end?

    Thank you!

    Sorry for late response. This is very strange problem, and I have no idea why they would be gone from the admin side, and still work on the front end. I have tested this on my end with Lite version of the plugin, and transferring from localhost to actual website was done and it was all working as expected. Only thing I can think of is that some of the plugin settings got lost during transfer (not actual post type definitions, but settings). Check that all gd-taxonomies-tools meta records in wp-options are transfered and identical.

    That’s why one of the (many, many) new features in Pro version is export/import for plugins settings and data to prevent transfer problems. It doesn’t mean much to you now, but theoretically, with you can upgrade old site to Pro (and new site also), export all settings to file and import on new site. Still, I can’t guarantee this since I am not quite sure why it got broken for you with Lite in the first place.

    Pro version:

    Thanks for the response. A quick fix for my issue was to recreate the custom content types with your plugin (same names), and once I did that they associated themselves with the custom posts again and everything was back to normal. I’m not sure why it happened, but it was an easy fix.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    Yeah, that always helps. I am puzzled why it happened in the first place. Good to know that you managed to fix the issue and continue using the plugin.

    Thank you,
