Wondering if 0.9.7.8 r772 should be generating postfooters on archive pages of CPT. Not happening for me and don't think I've broken anything, but thought I'd check.
Custom Post Type postfooter in 0.9.7.8 r772 archives(8 posts)
no idea. why don't you try the latest version?
and see if there is any difference?
Thanks Helga, sorry for the late response.
My bad on the version, I should have said 0.9.8 r772.
So it is close to the latest dev release.
I'm having a nosey at this thread - http://themeshaper.com/forums/topic/thematic-098-beta-testers-wanted and will hopefully get my head around the current state of play with CPT.
I have postfooters on my archive pages of CPT, using thematic from the development release helga linked to above. I think that is r756 though, don't know if anything has changed since then.
thanks middlesister - I've just re-tried that version and not getting postfooters on the CPT archive pages. Are you using a plugin or tweaking the thematic_postfooter to get that result?
No, it is very bare bones. The CPT has only two fields besides the title. In fact, I didn't even set up links to CPT archive pages (I use the CPT for random quotes/thoughts of the day), but since I use pretty permalinks I can visit them anyway manually.
Since I didn't make any changes to the archive loop, no other fields than the standard ones show. This means in my case that the only things showing are the title and - the postfooter. And the only thing showing in the postfooter is the published date since my CPT has neither categories nor tags. No tweaks, no plugins.
Do you use some kind of page template for your CPT?
thanks again middlesister - I've set up a fresh install on my local server to test various configurations using an unmodified thematic child theme.
At this point, rev 756 seems to show post footer in some archives. Rev 776 (which is not much different to 772) shows less promise. I'm using 776 as it displays custom taxonomies in the post footer. But seems like the revised 776 post footer is still evolving.
A few other issues need solving like showing displaying CPT in category archives, so I've got a bit of research to do when I can clear some space :\
Just for the record, managed to get 0.9.8 rev776 humming along with CPT and nice postfooters etc. Main problem was I didn't have all the required bits in the CPT 'supports' array.
Really appreciate all the work going into Thematic and the support and info in this forum. :)
