Using presentation page with custom content type

    I’m using Nirvana, and have used the PODS plugin to create a custom content type (“review”). I’d like to use the presentation page boxes to display the most recent content in my custom type (i.e., latest reviews). Is there a way I can point the boxes to my type, rather than to a category or tag?

    To do this you’ll need to customize the queries grabbing content and generating the presentation page areas.

    These queries are located in the frontpage.php file (which you can copy directly to the child theme to customize).

    Thanks. I’ve got a child theme in place, but I’m a bit puzzled as to piece of the code in frontpage.php specifies the post type for the query.

    That should read “I’m a bit puzzled as to which piece of the code in frontpage.php specifies the post type for the query.”

    Customize the appropriate
    $custom_query2->query('showposts='.$nirvana_columnNumber.'&[...]
    line (depending on the theme option you are using for the columns source) to add the necessary query parameters to retrieve your custom post type.

    Thanks. That should be enough to point me in the right direction.
