  • can you clarify exactly where this code is? i.e. is it inside a function that you're calling from a hook? – Simon Blackbourn May 11 '13 at 21:00
  • Its called by the function.php require_once locate_template('/lib/ticket-post-type.php'); // Custom Post Types – SoupOfStars May 11 '13 at 21:02
  • try reading and working your way through this tutorial, you should be able to find the relevant functions in your theme and add in your extra column. – Simon Blackbourn May 11 '13 at 21:12
  • Hi I tried that one earlier, but maybe i was doing it wrong? – SoupOfStars May 11 '13 at 21:22
  • is the first part of your code (where you define the array) inside a function, and is that function called by a hook? in your question it's just floating around in the middle of nowehere... – Simon Blackbourn May 11 '13 at 21:27

Try replacing everything from the comment downwards with this. Basically you seemed to have a function in there that wasn't getting called, and you need to add the case "incr_number" test to the woo_supportpress_ticket_custom_columns function:

/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
/* Admin columns for post types */

        'incr_number' => __('Ticket ID', 'woothemes'),
        'status'      => __('Status', 'woothemes'),

  • hi thanks for that but it made no difference, incr_number still isn't been populated. it displays fine in loops so i know it works just cant figure out why not on the back end – SoupOfStars May 11 '13 at 22:46
  • ` echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'incr_number', true );` THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM! Thanks Simon Blackbourn your a life saver! – SoupOfStars May 11 '13 at 22:50
  • glad to help! well spotted with the typo - i've now updated my code with your correction. – Simon Blackbourn May 12 '13 at 15:50
