I am creating a custom post type to allow me to use the spirit theme to create property websites.
Lets assume we create a custom post type called "properties"
Within properties there are a number of custom fields such as price, images, location, description etc everything youd expect from a property detail page.
Firstly, I cannot seem to apply a theme template to the custom post type.
Secondly, if I edit the page in upfront and save, it asks me if I wish to apply this layout to all posts of this kind, I select yes.
My assumption would be that if a new property is added, when you view the page it would have the same layout as previously designed, but this seems to not be the case.
What I need to acheive is this...
Create a custom post type, and have some kind of template applied to it.
Create one test property, go to upfront screen and edit the layout for that property, with shortcodes and plugins etc.
We then use an importer to create lots more properties automatically each day, so these are not manually created, but I want each new property to have the same layout as the first dummy one created, I cannot seem to achieve this.
I also have issues with your google maps plugin not showing the map location based on custom fields in the properties custom type.
Hope that makes sense.
