Support » Plugin: Seriously Simple Podcasting » Podcast post type not showing up in Elementor

  • Resolved delwark


    At some point I have noticed that Elementor does not recognize the podcast post type anymore. I have installed previous versions of this plugin going back up to 1.20.13 to see if an update caused this issue but nothing changed. The weird thing is, I have another custom post type on this website which Elementor does recognize. I also rolled back Elementor several versions but nothing… any idea of how I can fix this?

    Hi @delwark when you navigate to the Elementor -> Settings -> General area of your WordPress dashboard do you see the Podcast post type listed there? If so is it checked?

    Looking at this on one of our testing sites with a fresh install of WP, Elementor and SSP it looks like it’s picking up correctly on our end, so curious to hear more about the versions of each of those tools you’re running if you’re not seeing the Podcast post type as an option there (and/or if it’s checked).

    Hi @podcastmotor Yes it is checked. Maybe to clarify, I can use Elementor for the Podcast post type, that’s not the problem.
    The issue is that when I go into Elementor I cannot select to display the Podcast post type. My theme (JNews) has an option of selecting the content type I want to display, see here: (posts or pages) but there should also be the option of Podcast. And it was there!
    I checked with the theme developers and they told me this:

    We downloaded the plugin and tested it from our side. We do encounter the issue you described.

    We see that the plugin does not register the custom post type in a standard manner or the plugin did not want to register the custom post type as a regular custom post type which causes our theme to not catch this custom post type.

    Woocommerce and other plugins that registered the custom post types do not have this issue.

    Please contact the plugin author to fix this issue.

    @thegroundingjourney your issue is a different problem. I would suggest to create a new thread/topic.

    Hi @podcastmotor
    I got a further reply from my theme developer saying this:

    We see that the plugin uses register_activation_hook instead of the init hook which is probably the source of the issue.
    Other plugins use the init hook to register the custom post type which our theme can catch.

    Is this something you can change? Thanks!

    Hi @itsjusteileen will do!

    I am having the same issue. When I first installed Seriously Simple Podcasting and went to Theme Builder to make templates, the Display Conditions dropdowns DID include the Podcast types. I selected Podcast Archive for my podcast home page, but after making a template and loading the page to view it, the page was based on the default site template. Same thing with my header I had made for podcast pages, and my podcast single page. Then when I went back into Display Conditions to check on it, the podcast types were GONE, and they have been gone ever since.

    @delwark I’m updating this support ticket with the details we discovered when testing this via our dedicated support channels.

    The issue was related to the theme being used, specifically a plugin that the theme suggests installing. Once the user disabled that plugin, the problem was resolved. I am therefore closing this ticket.

    @seattlehoo I think you are experiencing a different issue to @delwark so could I ask you to please log a separate ticket for it, thanks.
