Support » Plugin: Genesis Custom Post Types Archives » Post meta syntax for custom post types

  • Resolved Peter.Ingersoll



    I’m trying to figure out the correct syntax to enter into the Post Meta field in CPTs Archive to display my CPT taxonomies.

    I’ve tried versions of
    [post_terms before=’Details: ‘ taxonomy=’geography’]
    with no success.

    One issue is that I’m not sure what to use for quotation marks. If I use the standard double-quote as shown in the example, the value that saves is truncated at the first quote. Other combinations of single or double quotes hasn’t worked. You’ll see in the example above that I’m also trying to change the default “Filed under:” to “Details:” I’ve tried variations leaving that part out, and I still can’t get any custom CPT taxonomies to show up.

    The second issue is the doubling up of the sidebar on all pages that are not archive pages. This is noted in another forum post (hoping for an official fix).

    I’m using Pippin Williams’s Easy Content Post Types plugin to create my custom post types and taxonomies.

    Hello Peter,

    The post_terms shortcode (see here) is actually a potential Genesis issue. Please post that to the StudioPress forums and link to it here. If you email me the link I will join the conversation there.
