    I’m testing GP 3.0 Beta which is great so far. However I have a problem that I can’t figure out.

    I’ve a CPT ‘formation’.

    In single-formation.php, if I have the line

    get_template_part( 'content', 'formation' );

    it displays the content as in 2.7

    If I replace the line with :

    generate_do_template_part( 'content', 'formation' );

    It shows nothing.

    What Am I doing wrong ?



    Looking into the function code, it seems it does not handle CPTs ? There’s only one parameter.

    Should I keep using get_template_part() for CPTs ?

    Hi there,

    Tom provides an example here:


    The CPT would of course need to be built upon the GP template for the function to exist.


    I saw that but didn’t understand, now I think I do.

    I can either :

    – keep using get_template_part within child theme templates as default wordpress behavior


    – use generate_do_template_part, remove the child theme templates and use a add_action( ‘generate_before_do_template_part’, function…) which would check the post_type and displays information accordingly

    Using the later opens up possibilities of calling those from Elements and other places in the code. Did I get this right ?

    Exactly! There’s nothing wrong with keeping the core get_template_part() if you’re already using a child theme.

    generate_do_template_part() simply allows for a way to remove the default get_template_part() and add your own loop item without the need for a child theme template 🙂
