I created a custom post type and two test posts for it but they are not feeding onto my home page (set to display my latest posts under Reading Settings) nor are they being pulled onto the monthly archives page. Only regular Posts are there.
My question is twofold, 1) Do people aim to get their CPT posts to show up with their other posts if they are in the mould of a blog article (which my CPT’s are). Or are they separated for a reason.
and 2) I tried a few snippets in my functions.php that I found online but none work so far. Is there a filter for this?
People generally don’t want CPTs showing up in the default WordPress post loops – which is why they create CPTs.
I see. I could use my default posts easily enough instead of a CPT but I want to add custom fields to the edit screen and also customize the template and then these would show up in every post I made when I don’t need them. I thought as well as clutter it could cause other issues.
