Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem with WordPress recognizing my Custom Post Type

  • I registered a custom post type “lom_video” and all appears to be working well except for one thing. I was troubleshooting why a conditional tag wasn’t working so I put this code into the post template to make sure wordpress was recognizing the post type:

    <?php echo get_post_type(); ?>

    It should display “lom_video” but instead it displays “post”. All other indications show that it recognizes it as “lom_video”…

    1. It’s using the custom post template I set for lom_video
    2. Published posts are using the proper url structure I set for this type of post
    3. When I preview a draft the url ends with:

    but for some strange reason when I have it display the post type it says it’s a “post.”

    What’s going on here?
