Here’s how to query custom post types with WordPress 3 and better.
Let’s say our custom post type is named “books”. Here is how to create a list of posts from the books custom post type:
<ul> <?php global $wp_query; $wp_query = new WP_Query("post_type=books&post_status=publish"); while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post(); ?> <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li> <?php endwhile; ?> </ul>
This code is designed to work in any of WordPress theme files, preferably in a location that makes sense.
