I'm using platfom pro, and have created (written the code) for my own custom post types. What is the best way to display them, I want to show several excerpts for each of the custom post types that I have created on my home page. Is it a new section? Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to do this? Thanks

Since you say you're using PlatformPro, not PageLines Framework, our documentation for the older product ishttp://www.pagelines.com/docs/ <-- located here. It sounds more like you're trying to create a hook than a section, since your custom post types seem to be part of the loop, unless I'm mistaken. If you're trying to put the data into a widget, then yes, a section is applicable.

There are plugins out there that help you create custom post types, taxonomies and display them in posts or pages easily. I'm not sure if that would work for you. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make a hand-crafted custom post type appear on a post/page as I'm not a developer. You'd need one of those guys. We have a few available for special projects at
