Although I'm also curious as to why you'd want to do this, and would probably suggest using a custom post type instead, this would probably work (actually works for any single post type except pages and attachments): add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'wpse44983_single_post_404' ); function wpse44983_single_post_404( $query ) { if ( $query->is_main_query() ...

There's nothing stopping you using AJAX for a singlepage website that loads in other pages dynamically rather than going to a whole new page. I would advise you build the site without the AJAX and then add AJAX on top so that everything degrades gracefully should an error occur or if javascript is turned off. So assuming that you've now got a site that ...

You can use the following instead, if (is_singular('post')) { //your code here... } Where by is_singular is the WordPress API conditional function for testing for the existence of a post type. You can also pass an array of post types if you wish. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_singular

Visit the permalinks page (which will flush it) and check again. WordPress probably just needs to be nudged to recognize your addition to the hierarchy.

I don't think get_categories() is the best option for you in this case because it returns a string with all the categories listed as anchor tags, fine for displaying, but not great for figuring out in code what the categories are. Ok, so the first thing you need to do is grab the product/post object for the current page if you don't already have it: global ...

You can use template_redirect hook to redirect for a custom post type, you can use any other URL you want to in place of home_url() and the error code in other argument. <?php add_action( 'template_redirect', 'wpse_128636_redirect_post' ); function wpse_128636_redirect_post() { $queried_post_type = get_query_var('post_type'); if ( is_single() ...

According to the WordPress conditional docs it should be: if(is_singular( 'video' ) ){ // do conditional stuff } else{ //do other stuff } Also if you want a blank page or no content to show when the CPT is not video you don't really need the else so you could omit it. You could ALSO do something like: if(!is_singular( 'video' ) ){ // do ...

You don't want a post to be the front page, you want a custom post type entry to be the front page. Now that we have the terminology right, yes it's possible. A client once asked me to do the exact same thing. They had a custom post type they needed displayed on the front page. Doing so was as simple as adding a filter to allow them to select a "stack" ...

Well, for anyone else looking to solve a similar problem, I found this post, and it led me in the right direction: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/pagination-on-singlephp-causing-301-redirect?replies=9. I added this snippet of code to my functions.php, and I can paginate in custom queries without issue on single.php now. I don't know enough about it to ...

You could try something like (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_post_type) : to check if it's not a specific post-type : if ( is_single() && 'portfolio' != get_post_type() ) { // DO STUFF } or to check if it's a post and not a post-type : if ( is_single() && 'post' == get_post_type() ) { // DO STUFF }

get_ancestors() should do what you need: So, you should do something like this: $ancestors = get_ancestors($term_id, 'projects_category)

For the templates WordPress uses, please always refer to Template hierarchy scheme in the Codex. As you can see there, single-{$posttype}-{$slug}.php does not exist, there is only single-{$posttype}.php. To do what you want, have a look at the filter 'single_template': add_filter( 'single_template', function( $template ) { global $post; if ( ...

If I understand well you want to show the last post (one post) from one of the 3 post types you have, using a dynamic url like http://example.com/latest. First of all lets add a filter to 'do_parse_request' filter: add_filter( 'do_parse_request', function( $bool, WP $wp ) { $home_path = trim( parse_url( home_url(), PHP_URL_PATH ), '/' ); $path = ...

next_posts_link and previous_posts_link (plural) are for archive pagination. For single posts you want next_post_link and previous_post_link (singular).

Just check for the global $numpages variable: <?php global $numpages; if ( is_singular() && $numpages > 1 ) { // This is a single post // and has more than one page; // Do something. } ?>

is_single() returns TRUE or FALSE, not a string. Additionally, you can test for a specific post with is_single() function by putting the post slug into the function call: if ( is_single( 'your-post-slug' ) ) { # do something } If you want to test for the proper post type use: if ( is_singular() and 'your-post-type' === get_post_type() ) or just: ...

I used this little trick to obtain the taxonomy image given the ID of the term: <?php $images = get_option('taxonomy_image_plugin'); $img_url = wp_get_attachment_url( $images[$term_id] ); ?>

There are some global variables available (or not) to detect the current page number: if ( empty ( $GLOBALS['multipage'] ) or $GLOBALS['numpages'] === $GLOBALS['page'] ) echo '<a id="lastPageLink" href="#comment">comment</a>'; The best way to understand what they do is a look at the internals of wp_link_pages(). (bool) ...

init is too early (it happens before the main query), use the action template_redirect instead. And for the ID use get_the_ID(). Example: if ( is_singular() ) setcookie( get_the_ID(), 'visited',time() + ( DAY_IN_SECONDS * 31 ) );

I need to stress that I think this is going to be very unstable and you may not always get the results you want, but in simple cases this should work. $content = apply_filters('the_content', get_the_content()); $content = explode("</p>", $content, 2); // var_dump($content); // debug echo $content[0].'</p>'; echo '<div>Extra ...

has_term should work in this case: if ( has_term( 'audio', 'product_cat' ) ) { echo 'In audio'; woocommerce_get_template_part( 'content', 'single-product' ); } elseif ( has_term( 'elektro', 'product_cat' ) ) { echo 'In elektro'; woocommerce_get_template_part( 'content', 'single-product' ); } else { echo 'some blabla'; ...

You can use a shortcode or the_content filter. I think the_content filter is better because your don't introduce any string in your post, so the content can be exported and used in another platforms if needed. For emxample, for show a block of adsense after the first parragraph: add_filter( 'the_content', 'tbn_ads_inside_content' ); function ...

A simpler way to do that can be passing the following args when registering the Custom Post Type register_post_type('sample_post_type',array( 'labels' => array( 'name' => _x('Sample Posts', 'post type general name'), 'singular_name' => _x('Sample Post', 'post type singular name') ), 'public' => true, 'exclude_from_search' => true, ...

As the WordPress Codex for have_posts points out: As a side effect, have_posts starts, steps through, or resets The Loop. At the end of the loop, have_posts returns 0 after calling rewind_posts. Looking at the source as it stands today: along with calling rewind_posts() it also fires the loop_end action (which plugins may rely upon) as well as set a ...

The very broad answer for why this doesn't work is that the internet is stateless. Basically each request for a page is a separate and unique instance from other page requests. Example Let's say post-1 is in category-1 and category-2. When Wordpress loads post-1 on single.php it has no way of knowing how the user arrived at the page. It only knows that ...

Per a comment, the problem was due to the use of query_posts which clobbers the main query. Please don't use query_posts. It should be noted that using this to replace the main query on a page can increase page loading times, in worst case scenarios more than doubling the amount of work needed or more. While easy to use, the function is also prone ...

Use the post thumbnail for the single blog pages too. You can use the add_image_size() function to create an additional image size that is displayed on the blog posts. add_image_size('single-post-image', 650, 250, true); // name, width, height, crop mode Then in single.php the_post_thumbnail('image-size'); Simply place the first function in your ...

Unless you have added the functionality with a plugin or custom code, Pages are not placed in Categories. Pages are organized with Parent Pages and Children Pages. This is why (I suspect) in_category() does not work in page.php The following code in functions.php will add categories to Pages. /** * Add categories to Pages. * from ...

the function get_the_tags() does for a single post, what get_tags() does for the site.

There are a number of template filters you can use to alter the template hierarchy. Have a look at the template hierarchy page at the filters and example provided. Here's a modified version of the example that uses single_template. It checks for a specific custom post type and loads the theme's page.php template if it exists: function ...
