CPT Post formats Widget/Nav Views


I created a post type that calls in post formats, however on the navigation or Widget options, I only can organize by the default post formats from the defaul post. How can I display widget or menu options to display formats for the specific custom post type?

    Hello there!

    I'm not quite sure I follow what you're asking but I will take a shot.

    I'm pretty sure that you can insert a query in front of the call for posts in the page template that queries your custom post type, that will cause your custom post type to be used instead of the default posts.

    Does this help?

    I think my question was confusing.

    I want to be able to organize the custom post type by post formats, so all videos formats or all audio formats from a CPT. Right now in the custom menus or with taxonomy widgets I am able to choose Formats as an option, but it only displays from the default posts not from the CPT.

    I hope this is clearer, let me know if it makes sense to you.

    Within the screen options in Menus I can select formats to create a menu, circled in attached image. But when I do that, it only shows me formats of default post type, not the CPT I added and included post formats too. I want to show the formats of the posts for the CPT only, not the default post type. Hope this helps.
