How to Expand Social By MailChimp Broadcast to Custom Post Type

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to expand social by MailChimp broadcast to custom post type? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to expand social by MailChimp broadcast to custom post type in WordPress.

There’s a WordPress plugin that allows you to publish your posts to Facebook and Twitter and receive any comments back. But, if you have custom post types, they’ll get left out. With the added array in the code below, you can expand social to broadcast all of your posts.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:


// original
public static function broadcasting_enabled_post_types() {
  return apply_filters('social_broadcasting_enabled_post_types', array('post'));
}
// enable your custom post type by adding them to the array
public static function broadcasting_enabled_post_types() {
  return apply_filters('social_broadcasting_enabled_post_types', array('post', 'cutom_post_type', 'videos', 'fashion', 'etc'));
}

This line returns an array of post types that social is enabled for, so just add yours with this:'custom_post_type_name'
