Custompress columns not showing


We are not sure whats happened. We had 3.7 and CustomPress installed. The columns all showed up OK. Our client this afternoon reported that they could no longer see any of the custom meta in custom post type columns but the custom meta is available when they edit the actual post.

I therefore tried upgrading to 3.7.1 and the latest version of CustomPress but to no avail. The data is in the DB, but its not being pulled into the columns.

Another behaviour they reported was that Posts2Posts was no longer able to see relations from one post type to another. Examples Agendas and Days are related. If you look at agenda you can see the day its related to. If you go to the day, it does not list any of the agenda posts... so again the data is there but something is not happening.

I know you didnt make posts2posts but wanted to describe that also to see if it helps in working out if CustomPress has some odd issue?

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

    Ah, that's a bit clearer, thanks!

    You're referring to the custom fields you have created in CustomPress and assigned to a custom post type.

    However, those screenshots also raise another question: what did you do to get those fields to display in columns on the post type management screen (

    Are you using a plugin for that, or did you add some custom code in functions.php?

    Also, you say that this has been occurring only lately. Have you installed or updated any other plugins recently? Have you changed the theme on that site?

    If it is only happening recently, then something on the site has changed recently. You would need to track that down.

    Have you tried basic troubleshooting protocol to locate the possible conflict?

    Revert to a default WordPress theme (Twenty-Twelve or Twenty-Thirteen). Is the problem still there? If the answer is no, then it's a theme conflict. If it is still present...

    De-activate all plugins. Then re-activate them one by one, and test with each activation until you find the problem plugin.

    Once we've zeroed in on the possible cause(s) of your issue, we'll be better equipped to deal with it.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
