Home Forums Other Custom Posts in WordPress Re: Custom Posts in WordPress


So from my experience you can try this. If you have a custom Post type called jobs, then you can create a new file in your theme folder called single-jobs.php and here you can use the code from the single.php file which is in charge to display the single “normal” posts. You can go from there and edit the new file. if you have a file called single-{custom-post-type}.php wordpress will use this file to display the single custom post type. Just replace the {custom-post-type} with the name of your custom post type.

Also as ChrisP told you already there is a problem since your custom post type is actualy new_jobs, or there are some miss configuration when you are creating the CPT. If this is the first time you are working with CPT I may suggest you to use Advance Custom Fileds plugin and Custom Post Type plugins for wordpress.

…and don’t forget to read: the [WordPress codex]( “WordPress Codex”) – all the info is there.
