#4. Select Custom Post Type And Taxonomies

Now the part you have been waiting for! Simply select your custom post type from the Post Type dropdown and any taxonomies that you have created will appear.

    I think “most common questions” is probably an understatement. I spent a day prototyping some custom post types and built out a taxonomy, and then saw the Divi limitations, and spent another day exploring my options. This was over the weekend, so, umm, great timing!

    This is great, Nelson and something that Divi should have already done, but whatever… The next step is support for custom fields in the Blog module when using a CPT, since I find that whenever I need to create a CPT for a client, I always need at least 1-2 custom fields, so I need to use Divi Machine or Toolset. I am assuming that is much more of a challenge programmatically than enabling taxonomy support? In any case, thanks for creating this and for all the other great stuff you make available to Divi users.

    Hi Nelson, thank you for all your video tutorials, they are very precious!
    I installed the plugin and I see the Custom Post Module in Divi: I’m glad to see all the tags that I assigned to each post and not only the categories. Unfortunately the module doesn’t filter in the right way, but it shows always all tags, instead of the selected ones…

    Hi Nelson
    I’m very happy with your plugin, so that I can create specific tag pages. But your custom blog doesn’t show as a grid on my page, all blogposts are underneath each other and not even looking good with the spacing, which is right on the other blog modules.
    Wanna see

      I see this is due to the Divi performance settings. I’ll check into it, but for now I see two options. Either add a Blog module to the page (this will load the CSS for the blog) or turn off Dynamic CSS in Theme Options.

      Almost same problem here. But also If I go outside the visual builder the content does not display

      Nelson you absolutely rock, hope you can get to fix this asap. Also when I go out of the builder the custom post are not being displayed…

      I tried to add a blog module to the page but it is not helping. Also my Dynamic CSS is disabled.

      The first module with teacher is a blog post module. The second one is the custom post module.

      Thanks in advance for your work and for helping me out.

        Hey there,

        Could you please go to the Divi > Theme Options > Builder > Advanced and clear the static CSS file generation and see if that helps?

        If that doesn’t help then inside Divi > Theme Options > General > Performance, try disabling the options and see if that helps and let me know how it goes.

    Wow! Thanks Nelson. This was the missing piece for those of us who use custom post times for sites that provide resources, ecourses etc. This is super. And thanks for offering it to the DIVI community as a freebie. Super generous of you and much appreciated.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for taking the time to create this tool but i am having some issues. When I select ‘Categories’ from my taxomony type dropdown I don’t get a list of the categories I have created. I have tried to create new categories to test but they are not showing up either.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Cheers

    Hi Nelson, this is amazing as it was just what I was looking for. I was completely stumped to find out the existing blog module didn’t support CPT taxonomies. So thank you very much for giving this away to us.

    I was too having troubles with styling on the grid layout, but have fixed that due to your comment about disabling ‘Dynamic CSS’ or adding in a blog module. I did the latter.

    The only other thing I noticed, that would be a huge help, is that the option to filter by ‘Posts for Current Page’ doesn’t work. This means creating a specific page for each tag I have created. This means if I or someone else adds in a new tag, then a new specific page is needed to be created manually for that tag, whereas if the ‘Posts for Current Page’ worked, then I could create one template for all tags within that CPT and then any new tags added would automatically have an archive page generated.

    I presume this was an oversight or is adding that functionality a much bigger job in itself?

    Great thank’s to you Nelson.

    Before using your plugin on one of my client website I test it on https://tests.pixeligo.com/. The first step is to create the CPT and the taxonomie (Producteur and Label). It was very fast with your Generator ;-). I have regenerated the permalinks. The second step is to use your plugin (thank you again). With the visual builder I see the list of the posts and without the list disappear ! I try with the Divi Blog Post (without taxonomies) and the post are displayed. The result is on https://tests.pixeligo.com/ if you need to see it. Thank you Nelson. Regards. Pascal

    Hi i also have the same iussues of Leo. I have created 3 post types and 2 taxonomies that I see regularly in the admin menu and in the div builder while in the custom blog module of plugin i can see all 3 custom types, all 2 taxonomies but not the list of categories. I noticed that the list of taxonomy in the custom module appears to me only for the last custom type I generated. If I move the order of the post types in the code, I regularly see only for the last one in the list, so if I create a single post type and vary taxonomy everything works.
    Thanks for your help.

    This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for for weeks! It’s working as it should, however, it is cropping the featured blog image. I already had the function you mentioned in this article: https://www.peeayecreative.com/how-to-stop-divi-image-crop/ added and it works with the regular blog module, but it does not work with the custom blog module. It’s cropping them all square.

    Any suggestions?

    Nelson,
    Thanks for this plugin. It’s really important and filling a missing piece for me. I am wondering if there’s an easy way to change the amount of columns from 3 to 4.
    Thanks,
    Amy

    I know it’s a free plugin and I don’t expect any support, but i wanted to report an error being thrown with the plugin as of May 4th-
    Deprecated: Required parameter $render_slug follows optional parameter $content in /www/advantagehomehealth_674/public/wp-content/plugins/divi-customblog-module/includes/modules/HelloWorld/HelloWorld.php on line 30
    If I come up with a fix, I will post it here.
