    UPDATE – still need some insight!

    I did further testing and if I choose “posts” as the post type in the shortcode, the_content is pulled in successfully by the template.

    However, it is not working for custom post types…

    I have two on the site, “glossary” as I showed in the link in my original post and one other. I have tried both for testing and the A-Z listing shows the title, but not the_content for either of these.

    So, my custom A-Z template is still “working” but suddenly not for custom post types.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you so much for your reply, Daniel. My template does indeed include that line.

    This is what that section of my custom template looks like. This was your base, all I added was the_content.

    <ul class="columns <?php echo $column_class; ?>">
    	while ( $a_z_query->have_items() ) :
    	$a_z_query->get_the_item_object( 'I understand the issues!' );
    	<a>the_permalink(); ?>">
    	<?php $a_z_query->the_title(); ?>
    	<?php echo  the_content(); ?>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>

    Like I said, this worked just fine (shown in the link I posted before). I made no changes other than updating all my plugins. I went from your plugin’s 2.1.4 to the latest.

    If the above looks correct, could there be anything I’m missing that would have interfered with this from one version to the next?

    Thank you so much for your reply…

    I could not find a plugin incompatibility (not really using many).
    But, here’s what I found…
    I was using Phlox theme (free version) and there was not much control for their search archive templates. I was overriding them with Elementor, but there seemed to be an issue there (still pulling in theme settings on the archive when it shouldn’t).

    So, to test, I activated the 2017 WP theme and got some results… my custom [Elemntor built] archive template & alternatively testing the theme archive template… correctly pulled in Glossary term results BUT only using the search form by the Ivory Search plugin, which allowed me to target that post type.

    Still, after reverting to a default WP theme, and both using (and not using) my Elementor custom archive, the default WordPress search form does not pull in Glossary post type results. And, I do have that “turned on” in the Glossary plugin settings to force them to be added to the WP results.

    So, I think I have found a solution for myself… but wanted you to know in case there was anything else you could suggest – or just info that may be helpful to you as the developer.

    Again, thanks so much for your response.

    One more note…
    Pages where the highlighted glossary terms appear (with the tooltip hint enabled) DO appear in searches for the glossary terms.
    But having the individual glossary posts appear in search results is important for this site (developing locally right now, so can’t share a link).

    I did just see this in the plugin description:
    “Codeat’s Glossary for WordPress supports the following plugins: YARPP, Crayon Syntax Highlighter, Ninja Forms, Yoast SEO, Elementor (not pro version)”

    I am using Elementor Pro… everything is working great except for the search… [why] would there be an incompatibility with the pro version?

    Thank you for your response.

    This is what’s strange… We launched the site in August and no updates have been made since (except adding posts and auto updates of the WP core – using 4.3.1 now).

    The client needed to change the information in the tables and contacted us when they couldn’t find it.

    It is one of three in a field group. The field label appears, along with the dropdown asking whether to use a table header, but that is all. The other ACF fields in the group appear fine. The information is appearing on the front end fine as well. (The field group is appearing conditionally based on page template.)

    We are using the free version of ACF. Before updating the plugins today, we we using the latest available versions of ACF and yours.

    I tried creating a new field group with a table and added it to another page, but the same problem occurs.

    I also tried signing in with multiple browsers (FF, IE and Chrome) to no avail.

    I’d be happy to provide any other information you think might be pertinent.


    I am having the exact same problem as pirossi. However, updating the ACF plugin and yours to the latest version did not do the trick (4.4.3 and 1.1.3 respectively).

    Any suggestions?

    Did you ever find a fix for this? Our host auto updated the comicpress theme to 4.2 and it broke quite a few things. Rather than try to figure it out, we reverted back to the last theme backup we had which was 2.9.2

    It resolved everything except now there is a navigation issue. Like you, we only see first and last buttons – but comics are accessible through archives and their single post links.

    Let us know whether you resolved it!
