Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying a post type in index pages and search results, part of WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies (2014).
In the previous movie, I created a function that allowed us to mix our…custom post type in with our regular post in the index page on the site.…So, now you see both regular posts and reviews within the index page.…So now that we're displaying both types of content, we…have to make sure we tell the visitor which is which.…So the posts should be displayed as posts like they always are, but we should…also highlight the reviews in a different way…to tell the visitor, hey, these are reviews.…Now there are many different ways you can do that.…
You can create a custom content template and then only call that…content template in, anytime you're looking at a review, and we did…that previously in the course, or you can simply add some messaging…in the reviews to tell them you're now looking at a review.…And that's exactly what we're going to do here.…Looking back at our child theme, you'll…remember we created a file called content.php.…And this is the file that displays all the content on all our index pages.…And within content.php, we added a bit of new code down here, you'll see…
