Add custom post types to archives page

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will let you add custom post types to archives page.



Code Snippet:


function add_custom_types_archive( $query ) {
if( is_category() || is_tag() && empty( $query->query_vars['suppress_filters'] ) ) {
$query->set( 'post_type', array(
'post', 'your-custom-post-type-here'
));
return $query;
}
}
add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'add_custom_types_archive' );

  1. Gave this a try – I’m using Custom Post Types UI with Design Chemical Mega Menu in WP 3.2.1 – the CPT’s do get displayed, but:
    -some images do not display on welcome page
    -menu disappears/goes blank
    -all CPTs get included in recent posts
      
    Any thoughts on how to make this work…?
     
    Thanks in advance

    1. Add this as an additional post type –  ‘nav_menu_item’
