I created a custom post type in functions.php with these values (amongst others):
'hierarchical' => true, 'supports' => array( 'title', 'thumbnail', 'revisions', 'page-attributes'), 'capability_type' => 'page',
I understood this should be the bits needed to get page attributes to offer parent page as a dropdown to make it a child of another page, however all that shows in page attributes is Order with a number box. Have I missed something to get this working? I assume also that if this was working my custom content-type page would be available to choose as the homepage in Settings/Reading ?
