    CPTUI only registers your custom post types, it does not modify your theme or template files to show your new post type data as mentioned in the FAQ. Here’s a good tutorial on how to do that:

    Showing custom post types on your home/blog page

    Sorry but I followed the directions in that article to a “t”, nothing has changed. Could it be that it’s because the article is from 2010? Not sure how to get around this. The content is lost in space.

    P.S. I wasn’t trying to be difficult, it’s just that the instructions in FAQ and the “showing custom post types” article are extremely vague. I have access to a great plugin (CPTUI) and can’t make it work.

    Hi George.

    As Brad mentioned earlier, the CPT UI plugin doesn’t handle the display of your custom post types or taxonomies, you need to query and output the content yourself via your theme.

    I looked over Justin Tadlock’s tutorial and it is current information. It assumes you don’t have a static front page set via the setting > reading section, but are in fact showing your blog posts. What the tutorial will do is make WordPress query for the extra post types listed in it, and add it to the posts to loop/display on your frontpage.

    That said, we need to figure out where you want to display your custom post type data, and the best way to do that. So we’ll start there.

    What is the post type you registered?
    Do you want to show it somewhere as standalone content, or do you want to have it mixed into other loops of posts?
    What is your intent with the custom post type?
