Hi there,

 

Is it possible to restrict Post Pins to a custom post type? You can select a category but it would also be really useful to restrict it to a custom post type.

 

Many thanks in advance!

HI,

 

PostPins will only work with Posts. If you like, you're free to create a child section of PostPins and add the option for CPT support.

Thanks Danny, I can create child section but its knowing what to add - I don't know php.  Would be nice if this could be logged as an enhancement request please?

 

I'm quite often finding that ways to show posts that a sites owner can edit themselves is quite limited. Clients want to be able to edit there own site content and often its best its not all held in posts on the blog page, its good to use a category to group the posts or even a custom post type and then its nice to be able to display these posts in dfferent ways not just in the standard posts page layout.  Hence the use of Post Pins. Other ways of displaying multiple posts from categories or custom post types would be great.

Hi Danny, that link for github doesn't work - can you give me the correct one please - I had a look but couldn't find it.

 

I'd like to add a comment about another post pins ehancement - to add a filter at the top similar to as is used in the following plugin:

Many thanks :)

Hi there, that repository for postpins and the other products/sections are locked so only staff will be able to access unfortunately. 

 

Any enhancements place in the main tracker at https://github.com/p.../DMS/issues/new
