I have created a Custom Post type called "Ad" I then have a taxonomy under that called "type" I have added some terms in the Type category called "Radio", "TV", "Print". I would like WordPress to use a different single.php template for each term. I would like to have a Radio template that is different than the Print template. I have tried taxonomy-ad-type-radio.php I have tried single-ad-type-radio.php and every other form of those. Can someone tell me what's the best way to accomplish this?

I have added filters to my functions.php file to no avail also. I know I am just missing something very easy. Thanks so much for your help.

I think your are missing some concepts or not fully understanding.

  1. A taxonomy is a way to group things, ie, posts. The same taxonomy can be used for several post types, so a taxonomy is not under a post.
  2. The single template files are used for the view of a single post. You can make a different single template for each post type, even for each individual post.
  3. The specific template for a term of a taxonomy is taxonomy-{your_taxonomy}-{term}.php, in your case, it would be for example taxonomy-type-radio.php. This template will show all posts within the term radio of the 'type' taxonomy.

I think what you really want is to use a different single template based on the term of the taxonomy "type" associated to a 'Ad' post. I assume only one term of 'type' taxonomy can be selected per post. You can use template_include filter, or more specifically, the single_template filter:

<?php
function get_custom_single_template($single_template) {
    global $post;

    if ($post->post_type == 'ad') {
        $terms = get_the_terms($post->ID, 'type');
        if($terms && !is_wp_error( $terms )) {
            //Make a foreach because $terms is an array but it supposed to be only one term
            foreach($terms as $term){
                $single_template = dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/single-'.$term->slug.'.php';
            }
        }
     }
     return $single_template;
}

add_filter( "single_template", "get_custom_single_template" ) ;
?>

Put this in the functions.php file of your theme. Don't forget to create the single-*.php for each term (single-radio.php, single-tv.php, etc).

If you don't need a full template file and only need small modifications, like differents CSS classes, you can check if the post has the term and assign a diferrent class. For exmaple, in a common single template:

 <div class="<?php echo class="<?php echo has_term( 'radio', 'type' ) ? 'radio' : ''; ?>">
   <?php the_cotent();?>
</div>

Or

<?php
$terms = get_the_terms($post->ID, 'type');
$class = '';
//Make a foreach because $terms is an array but it supposed to be only one term
foreach($terms as $term){
    $class = $term->slug;
}
?>
<div class="<?php echo $class; ?>">
   <?php the_cotent();?>
</div>

Yes! I want to have a different template for each "type" So if the single post is in the radio category then it pulls the single radio template. Forgive my ignorance but where do I put your code? functions file? –  Ben Sep 13 '13 at 6:20
    
Yes, in the functions.php file. Also you have to create single-radio.php, single-tv.php and so on ... in your theme folder. –  cybnet Sep 13 '13 at 10:01
    
That is what I thought and I did all this and for some reason it is only pulling from the single-ad.php it refuses to look at any other single-template. Even when I get rid of the single-ad.php it wont look to any other single file. Maybe the theme developer put something in here somewhere to say to only pull from that one. I just cant find it ;-( –  Ben Sep 13 '13 at 14:04
    
In order to help you further I need to see the code you are using to register the custom post type and the custom taxonomy. Can you edit your question and add the code? –  cybnet Sep 13 '13 at 15:13
    
Can you also try again the code of my answer? I've edited it. –  cybnet Sep 13 '13 at 15:22
