Integrating Custom Post Types to X Theme Widgets and Sliders and Other Parts (Complete Integration)Integrating Custom Post Types to X Theme Widgets and Sliders and Other Parts (Complete Integration Like CPTs are regular posts)


Using Ethos stack on X Theme. Look at my site main page:

Some of my custom post type archive pages (all posts in these pages are Custom Post Types):

There is an Ethos slider showing random posts and below also you can see random posts. The problem is this. All of these are from the “Posts”. I have many many “Custom Post Types” (and soon all regular Posts will be converted to the CPTs.)
How can i change the X theme that i can also show posts from CPTs on Slider and main page and on widgets?

Hi İlhan,

Thanks for writing in! Regretfully this isn’t a feature offered by X. It could be possible with custom development, but this would be outside the scope of support we can offer. You may wish to consult a developer to assist you with this. X is quite extensible with child themes, so there are plenty of possibilities.

If you need a Custom Post Types slider on your page, we recommend you utilize the Revolution Slider extension, and for Custom Post Types lists/grid we recommend to utilize the Essential Grid extension.

Thank you for understanding.

Wow the Essential Grid seems great! I hope there is an easy way to show it on the main page.

Hey İlhan,

I believe it is fairly easy. You just need to create a static front page and paste the Essential Grid shortcode. If you’re using Cornerstone, you can add in the Essential Grid element to your Cornerstone built page.

If you’re not familiar yet, you can check our Knowledge Base for usage instructions.


Oh great static pages will do it nicely.
Note: Solved the other problem.

Thanks for suggesting The Grid. Because it really chances how you can show the site. Wow how i didn’t know that plugin.

You are most welcome. :slight_smile:
