    Hi, i try to make a custom page manually within GP theme. as much as possible, i want to avoid conflict to gp theme and still follow gp theme structuring. im using child theme at the moment to avoid messing with gp original structure.
    what i have :
    – Custom Post named “Tips” created using “Custom Post Type UI” plugin
    – Several Custom fields assigned to “Tips” using “Advanced Custom Fields” plugin
    my objective :
    – create a custom page that will display published “Tips”
    – create a custom single page to display clicked “Tips”

    i stumble upon https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/building-custom-template-for-cpt-single-archive-php-pages-with-gp/ but im quiet confuse with it.

    this is what i’ve tried :
    – copy page.php to child theme, rename to page-tips.php
    – copy content.php to child theme, rename to content-tips.php
    – page-tips.php use get_template_part(‘content’,’tips’);
    – content-tips.php -> this is where im lost, i dont get where gp display the html output for the loop, i wish to change the loop to access Custom post “Tips” and its custom fields

    are above approach is correct? and also how about the single.
    Thank you


    okay, i found way now to change the loop :
    – in page-tips.php

    		<main id="main" <?php generate_do_element_classes( 'main' ); ?>>
    			 * generate_before_main_content hook.
    			 * @since 0.1
    			do_action( 'generate_before_main_content' );
    			$wpquery = new WP_Query(array(
    				'posts_per_page' => -1,
    				'post_type' => 'betting-tips',
    				'post_status' => 'publish',
    				'orderby' => 'publish_date',
    				'order' => 'DESC',
    			$img_html = '';
    			while ($wpquery->have_posts()) {
    			 * generate_after_main_content hook.
    			 * @since 0.1
    			do_action( 'generate_after_main_content' );

    but i still confuse to how i can modify the output in content-tips.php


    Nevermind, i guess i have to learn the theme_function of gp for this.
    but more documentation regarding this would be helpful.

    Hi there,

    content-x.php is a file that gets included into the page.php template – it’s there only for organization purposes, as it allows users to overwrite the loop only without having to overwrite the entire template.

    In your case, just remove the get_template_part() and add your custom loop in its place 🙂


    On a related note, how would I create an alternate ‘Blog/Posts’ page that displays the default blog loop, but ‘orderby=modified’. (maybe this should be a separate post)

    This is likely better suited as a new post.
