pre_get_posts to display CPT on page template? (1 post)

    Hey folks- I've got several CPTs set up (news, video, in addition to posts), and I need to effectively create an index/archive style listing for each.

    I'm using a static page for the homepage, and I don't necessarily want to declare a single page as the "posts" page since I need several versions of that.

    Trying to do this with pre_get_posts by checking to see if we're looking for one of the pages that should drive this, and then changing the query thusly:

    function test_pgp($query) {
    	if ((!is_admin()) && ($query->is_main_query())) {
    		if (is_page('videos')) {
    			$query->set('post_type', 'husa_video');
    		if (is_page('news')) {
    			$query->set('post_type', 'husa_pr');
    		if (is_page('blog')) {
    			$query->set('post_type', 'post');
    add_action('pre_get_posts', 'test_pgp');

    The is_page conditionals are returning true as desired, so that's not it, and I can even print_r the $query object inside those conditionals to make sure the post_type is getting set properly. It LOOKS right, but I'm not certain it actually is.

    Spitting out the $query object doesn't list any of the posts I'm looking for, and the front-end gets the 404 template.

    I've tried wiping out the page_id, I've tried setting is_page=false and is_archive=true, and I'm still not seeing any major changes.

    The above code is included by functions.php

    Thanks in advance for any pointers or direction you may all be able to provide!
