I have a custom post type called "my_people" along with a custom taxonomy named my_people_categories. It is used to display a list of people. I would like to show only the people in the list that are in a specific category in the custom taxonomy.

I have tried using the following short code, but it displays all the people and not just the ones in the categories named.

[catlist name=cat1,cat2 post_type=my_people orderby=title order=ASC]

Is there someway I am supposed to mention the taxonomy? Is what I am trying to do even possible using this addon?

according to the list of supported parameters you can possibly use it with a custom post type by setting post_type to any, but it doesn't appear to support custom taxonomies.
