Support » Theme: Elicit » Tags not showing up on single page

  • Resolved figure2



    Thanks for your help on my category navigation question.Just to preface my question, I am using a child theme of the Elicit theme, have changed it quite a bit and am asking for help on a custom post type “single” page. I thought I would start by asking for help here, even if this is beyond the scope of your assistance.

    That said, this is one of many of the single pages for my small_business custom post types:
    It uses most of the structure of Elicit’s single.php file. The main difference is that the content is created by two Advanced Custom Fields WYSWYG text fields instead of the main visual editor.

    I was able to set up categories and tags on my small_business custom post type and both work fine in the editor: Editor page for small_businedd custom post type

    The categories display fine as seen in the text “Business type: Contracting & Repair

    The tags on the other hand don’t display at all. I added my own text to the div tag with the .post-tag class to be sure it wasn’t hidden in any way:

    <div class="post-tag">
    		The tags should be showing up here.<?php the_tags(__('Tags', 'elicit') . ' ', ' ', ' '); ?>

    Tags should be showing up here.

    My text shows up but not the tags associated with the post.

    Any idea how I can resolve this?
