Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Including custom post types in the front-page index, part of WordPress: Custom Post Types and Taxonomies (2014).
With out custom post types, custom taxonomies and all the…templates created, we have to start thinking about how the…visitor is going to access all this new content, because…by default WordPress themes do not display custom post types.…We actually have to add the custom post…types into the user experience of our site.…The simplest way to do this is to just add links to our custom post type…indexes and our custom taxonomy indexes right in the main menu or in the side bar.…And this works fine for a lot of cases, but in…other cases you might want to mix your content together, so that…the visitor, who lands on the front page for instance, automatically sees…both your posts, you single pages, and also your custom post types.…
So, in the following movies, I'm going to give you…a couple of different methods for doing exactly that…and we'll start out with mixing the reviews post…type into the index page on the front page.…So when you go to the front page of the site, you see…both our regular posts and our…reviews mixed together in reverse chronological order.…
