    Hi,

    I created a custom post type and put the mail button in a single post of the type.
    In the regular posts it is working well, but in the custom post type I gt error 404 of a pgae not found.
    I tried to resave the permalinks with no help.
    I use the Custom Post Permalinks plugin to give my custom posts type a different permalink structure, so it might be that the wp-email cannot handle this?

    I will be happy if someone has a solution for that.

    Thanks

    I checked the code, it doesn’t seem to be specified to any post types. Does it work out of the box with custom post type without any plugins changging the default permalink?

    Hey Lester,

    I just gave that a shot and it did not work. It’s good on pages and posts but not on anything custom. I’m happy to help more if you need me.

    I have just tested it now also, tried to deactivate the Custom Post Permalinks plugin, resaved the permalinks and it didn’t work for me, still get 404 when clicking the email button.

    But, if I don’t use permalinks at all, and using WordPress default (i.e. with the query strings in the url) so the email button starts working for custom post types as well.

    So, it appears the issue is with custom post type and non default permalinks, and not an issue with that Custom Post Permalink plugin.

    Do you have an idea how this can be fixed?

    Many thanks

    Sorry man, was busy with other plugins. Will try my best.

    Great. Thanks, Lester. Let me know if you need help testing.

    Is there a progress with this bug, or this won’t work anymore?

    This plugin is very useful, but cannot be used with Custom Post Types.

    Many thanks

    +1 for a fix – great plugin, needs custom post type support 🙂

    Can anyone try the dev version http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-email.zip ?

    Thanks to worldwisewebs for bringing the forum post to my attention and thanks to jkohlbach for the fix.

    Once you guys have verified it has work, I will release it =)

    Been really busy with my work. Sorry about that.

    I downloaded the dev version and tried it.
    I still get 404 on Custom Post Types. Tried to resave the permalinks structure but it didn’t help neither.
