    Hi,
    I am using GPP for a site with a filterable portfolio. I used the Meta Box plugin to make a CPT and Content Views Pro to show the filterable portfolio. It seems to work fine. But I would like to display tags and navigation on the single portfolio pages and I can’t get it done… I think I might need to make a template for the single portfolio items. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Eva

    Hi Eva,

    So are the single portfolio pages a custom post type?

    If so, you could try something like this:

    add_action( 'generate_after_content', function() {
        if ( is_singular( 'your-post-type-name' ) ) {
            the_posts_pagination();
        }
    } );

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi Tom,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. Unfortunately this didn’t work… I made a custom post type for the portfolio items because there will be news items too. So, the single portfolio pages are a custom post type. But I didn’t make a special template to show the portfolio items, if that is what you mean. I am sorry for the confusion. Hope I managed to make myself clear, and you can help me resolve the problem.
    I have another question about custom fields, but I will make a new topic.
    Thanks again. Great support, as always!

    Hi there,

    Did you replace your-post-type-name with the name of your custom post type? Templates themselves shouldn’t matter as long as the ID of the post type matches.

    Hi Tom,
    Yes I did, and I tried everything I could think of…
    I used ‘project’ because: register_post_type( ‘project’, $args );
    I also tried ‘Project’ and ‘Projecten KPG’ because: ‘label’ => esc_html__( ‘Projecten KPG’, ‘text-domain’ ),

    The strange thing is that I can change the featured image (on/off, size), but I can’t change anything in the Single Content.

    Thanks!

    project should work.

    If you replace your function with the below, do you see the testing message?:

    add_action( 'generate_after_content', function() {
        if ( is_singular( 'your-post-type-name' ) ) {
            echo 'testing';
            the_posts_pagination();
        }
    } );

    Hi Tom,
    I have tried and yes, I do see ‘testing’ below the content of the post 🙂
    Hope you can tell me what to do the next.

    Thanks!

    Hi Tom,
    Uhm… don’t think this works…
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_post_pagination() in /…/…/….nl/wp-content/themes/generatepress_child/functions.php on line 86

    Sorry for all this…
    Thanks again,

    Hi there,

    can you double check the code you have added, Tom made an amend to the above. Note the undefined function is the_post_pagination() in Tom’s code it is the_posts_pagination()

    I would recopy and paste the code here:

    Hi David,
    Thank you for your reply, but unfortunately this doesn’t work either…

    Ah, sorry about that – typed the function wrong.

    the_posts_pagination() should be working, but it’s not outputting anything. Can re-add the original code that calls to the_posts_pagination() so I can inspect the code?

    #681390

    Eva

    Yep, just did. It’s now back to:

    add_action( ‘generate_after_content’, function() {
    if ( is_singular( ‘project’ ) ) {
    the_posts_pagination();
    }
    } );
    Just to make sure, in the Child: functions.php.

    I can make you a login, if you like..

    Thanks!

    This is super strange – some markup should at least be printed.

    Do you have any other functions on the site?

    Is the post navigation disabled in “Customize > Layout > Blog”? If so, what happens if you enable that option?

    #681864

    Eva

    I have another function and took it out to see what happens… nothing. Then I (de)activated some plugins: nothing.
    I also enabled/disabled all options in the Blog layout… nothing.
    Just to make sure: I added the function to the functions.php in the child theme.
