Flipper and Custom Post Types
I am using 'Type' plug-in to create custom post types.
However, when I go into Flipper (and some other DMS plug-ins) I don't see the custom post types I create in the Post Types drop-down; only Pages, Posts and Testimonials.
I assume Flipper supports custom post types, right?
If so, what settings should I look at to make it so all my custom post types appear in Flipper's drop-down selector for post types.
Blog Template with Custom Post Types
I am working on developing a research center for my charity's website (www.opfistula.org). We will define a custom post type for the research papers we include. I was hoping to use the blog template to display these custom post types. But I am not sure how to get the custom post types to display or how to get the sidebar information in the blog template (popular, recent, comments, tags) to link to the custom post type I have created. It seems to be linking to the normal post types, which I am using for our blog page.

Can you guys help?
Docker custom post type template problem
For the site I am creating I want to use the the docker as a side menu for some sections of the site.
However I want to keep the pages I am linking to, to have different templates.
Currently I can make a custom post type and get them into the docker but it would appear I am unable to use different templates for all these pages as having them as custom post types seems to force them all to have the same template.
Is there anyway I can use the docker to link to pages that use different page templates?
Need to Get Custom Post Types to Display Different Sidebar Widgets Based on Taxonomy / Terms
What's the best way to get custom post types with different taxonomies/terms to display different widgets in the sidebars? For example, I've created a custom post type for Market Updates with a (hierarchical) taxonomy of Property Types. I've got 3 different Property Types: Detached Homes Townhouses Condominiums I've created 3 different sidebars using the Sidebar Manager Light plugin: each one named for the above-noted Property Types. I've created 3 different Views using WP Toolset Views for each Property Type. I've added the Views to the sidebars in the WordPress widget area. I'm trying to use the Widgetizer section in the sidebar of each Property Type to display only the same types of properties (i.e., I only want Detached Homes Property Types to display in the sidebar of a Detached Homes custom post type). But it's not happening for me. No matter what, I get the same widgets in the sidebars of different pages (so Detached Homes shows up in the sidebar of Townhouses and Condominiums). I don't seem to be intellectually capable of figuring out how to get specific widgets to show up in the sidebars of specific custom post types (and only in those sidebars). I've tried Widget Logic (the plugin) with conditional tags and have tried custom templates but I can't get it to work and it's doing my head in. The site`s still under development but here`s a link to a page about Detached Homes, in case it helps: http://abbotsfordrealestate.co/market-updates/detached-homes-may-2014/ Can anybody tell me what I am missing / doing wrong? Thanks
Custom Post Types Meta Key / Meta Key Value Not Returning
I am trying to post various research studies from different journals using the masonic gallery. I am using The Custom Post Type UI plugin and have I have defined taxonomies (authors-for the people who wrote the paper, journal-for the periodical it was published in, and topic-for the topic the paper covers). I am trying to display all posts that have the specific journal value for the journal (in this case The Lancet). But when I enter the meta key slug that my plug produced (journal) and the specific slug for the journal (lancet). I get no results. Is this because I am not using the custom post type (papers) in the slug? I have tried various iterations, but nothing works. The only way I get a result is by selecting post type as "papers"
Is there a notation format I am missing for these metakeys?
