Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Pods Custom Taxonomy wrong link

  • Resolved maximusmedia



    I recently discovered Pods. Such a great work ! I was using CPT it was great but Pods is much easier, so thank you for that.

    Objective :
    I’m doing a private video review for my membership site.

    Step 1 : ok

    I created a pod “Video Review” and added 2 custom taxonomy for “Video Style” and “Editing Software used”.

    At this point evryhting is working great, thanks to your documentation and youtube 🙂

    Step 2 : not ok..yet

    Then I use elementor with their custom template for single post in order to get everything looking awesome (I basically can’t code).

    Up to this point thing start getting strange.

    I’ve my custom taxonomy automatically rendered as a link (great) but when I click on it I don’t get a archive page with all elements from the custom taxonomy.

    But an error page with a search box.

    The url is showing : video-style/youtube-video

    And this custom taxonomy is linked to the pod view review.

    Archive is activated on my pod and customized…this part works.

    I’ve been looking in the forum and video training but I’m afraid I’m missing something and obviously mission skills.

    Thank you for your time.

    Most archive and Taxonomy archives should work out of the box. If you’re using Elementor Pro, you really need to reach out to them if your display is not working properly, though, because if you’re using their “theme Templates”, they are controlling your theme display and overriding at the Taxonomy archive view.

    If you’re getting a not found on Taxonomy term selection, couple of things: verify your Taxonomy is associated to the post type (it probably is since you can get your term display on the single post type), verify you can get to that term Archive from the back end (Video Style, terms You-Tube and View Entries). If that link from the back end doesn’t work, switch to a standard theme, deactivate Elementor and see if it works. If it does, Elementor which is overriding your theme is the issue. Also check, Settings, Permalinks.

    We have our own methods to help people who can’t code make their content display through Pods Templates and Auto Template. Check out this video for an overview of Pods and how these features work:

    OOH, Jim !

    I’ve watched your video in search for a solution and learned a lot. I didn’t linked it to you at first ! Nice presentation.

    Thank you for your anwser.

    So I’ve checked : link from the backend work. They are submit from gravity form entry by user and populate the custom taxonomy.

    Can see them. I’ll email elementor support 🙂

    I’ll let you know.

    Sounds good, let us know what you find out. Marking this resolved as it sounds like an Elementor issue.
