Hey guys,

I just faced a very strange problem, I’ve created a custom post type (public => true), and on my local installation under the Menus section I can add custom post type in to the menu (and categories which belongs to that post type too).

But when I upload theme to the server, custom post type works fine, but doesn’t show up under the Menus section :weird:

I googled a little bit and find out that I’m not alone and renaming of the custom post type solved the problem and it’s now available under the Menus section.

But here is the problem, I don’t want to rename it, because it just feels wrong… :( Does anyone know what is the problem?

I’m lost…. :help:

Have you checked that the custom post tags/categories are checked under Screen Options on the Menus page in the top right corner?

GhostPool you are my HERO ! How dumb am I? :)

Any way to check this boxes by default? On theme activation?

I had the same issue. ;)

I believe when a user installs the theme for the first time they will display by default, it’s if you then add new post tags/categories or change them they may not display. So basically I think your customers will see them right away.

I hope it’s so, otherwise it will be a very frequent support request.

I was frustrated because I’ve tried reinstalling wordpress and was uploading my theme on clean wp installation, I guess it’s cookies then… :/

Once again, thank you!

I’ve had this question asked to me more than any other question on my latest theme because I have a portfolio custom post type. With my theme, they seem to not be showing for many people when they first install the theme. So, I went and put it int he documentation. Kind of frustrating though.
