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

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() ...

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" ...

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 ...

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 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 }

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: ...

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 ...

While much of comments implementation became simpler in modern WP versions, it still isn't quite make-comments-happen button. You will need to put together this part of template, most of related functionality is handled by: wp_list_comments() comment_form() Check native WP themes for complete start to end implementation, although they tend to be a ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 the filter hook for 'single_template'. Create single-cat1.php, single-cat2.php and single-cat3.php (cat1, cat2 and cat3 are the category names should be replaced by your category names) function template_change( $template ){ if( is_single() && in_category('cat1') ){ $templates = array("single-cat1.php"); } elseif( ...

This should help, if you need more info: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy Simply put, Wordpress looks for template files in the following order for single posts: single-{post_type}.php, single.php, index.php. If you want to override the standard single.php file, that's how (for a custom post type only, as you're using)

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 ...

Read Template Hierarchy article in the codex, especially pay attention to Single Post Display part. As you can see you have only three options: single-{post_type}.php single.php index.php It means that you can't create a template for posts related to blog category. So you shouldn't use single-blog.php template, use single.php instead and add there ...

As @Ravs mentions the third parameter in next_post_link()/previous_post_link() should be a boolean value indicating whether to restrict the link to a post in the same category. By default this is false. If set to true, it will choose the next (or previous) post which is in the same category as the current post. This includes all parent & child ...

I think this approach will work. 1.create template for single post like singlepost.php( default single post template),singlepost-99.php,singlepost-101.php. 2.now put just this code in single.php <?php global $post; get_template_part('singlepost',$post->ID); ?> what this code does check for single post template for current post by post id if not ...

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 ...

is_single() and is_page() refer to the main query and as far as I know are not altered to match the individual posts in a Loop. They refer to the type of page not to the individual posts. Try and you should see what I mean: $data = array(); $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => '-1', 'post_type' => array('post', 'page'), 'orderby' => ...

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() ...

An AJAX request is a new request to the server, and it is a request to admin-ajax.php. That is not a single post page. Any logic that depends on is_single() or any other page level template tags like it, won't work. If your AJAX callback needs that sort of information you must pass it to that callback in your AJAX request-- something like: function ...

So long as you're in the loop, you can just use the standard template tags: <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf­8"> initFrame({ app_id: "", object_id: <?php the_ID() ?>, object_title: "<?php the_title_attribute() ?>", object_content: '<?php echo wp_trim_words( strip_shortcodes( striptags( ...

Filter template_include, check if the current post is a product and load the product template. Example: add_filter( 'template_include', function( $template ) { if ( ! is_singular() or ! get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'price', true ) ) return $template; return locate_template( 'product-single.php' ); }); How exactly you determine if a post ...

Instead of making it category specific you could use post formats and use different content-templates. In single.php you can write <?php get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); ?> Then create different post formats add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'withpictures', 'withcomments' ) ); Then create different post templates ...

I'm making a couple of assumptions about how your theme is setup: You have two files: index.php. This is the file that begins the execution of the loop. content.php. This is the file in which your generic content template exists. You are familiar with get_template_part(). If not, it's easy to implement. For example purposes, I have two users in my ...

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 ...
