It happens fairly often that we have a client who needs a custom post type as well as the usual blog/news feature. We need post meta and/or post info to show up for the news posts, but we don’t need that information on the custom post type since that information tends to be fairly static, and we don’t really care who the author of an attorney bio is, or who updated a used equipment list. The top snippet is how we pulled that stuff out of CPTs in Genesis v1.
Note that before we can write a function that addresses the custom post type, we have to add another function that makes that possible. We’re going to add this to our standardized functions file (which I’ll write about some other time).
With Genesis 2 out, and changes made to the templates to support HTML5, some of the hooks have changed. Also, you no longer have to write that first function to enable the conditional. If you’re using Genesis 2, follow the second snippet below.
