I’m using the easy digital downloads plugin which uses custom post type to display the content, I have custom archive pages set up and am trying to display a snippet of the main body content.
Does Genesis recognise CPT’s ?
As far as I know, I don’t think a Custom Post Type will be added to the default WordPress loop without telling the theme that it’s there, Genesis or not. I know that when I make them, I make a special template to display them.
Also, when the CPT is defined, it can be “excerpt-enabled”, or not, by the developer. So to determine that, one might need to examine the plugin code.
I’m guessing that your plugin uses its own template(s) to display the CPT, you could have a look at that. Maybe that’s where you could set it up to use the excerpt. I know that with some plugins, you can even put a template/script into your own theme’s folder and hack it without disturbing the original plugin code. Its documentation may have info about that.
If I’m wrong, hopefully some uber-developer will correct me. Hope that helps.
