    You can create multiple layouts of your own taste by using DesignOrbital themes. In this tutorial, we will explain the recommended method of using custom post types widgets in different layouts.

    Custom Post Types Widgets

    You will find different widgets in your theme e.g Client Carousel, Flexslider, Services etc depending on your purchased theme.

    You can drag & drop these widgets to your created sidebars to design the layout.

    Prerequisite

    Recommended Method To Use Custom Post Types Widgets

    • Always use “Custom” sort instead of “Random or Latest” in the widget.
    • Enter respective custom post type IDs separated by commas.

    Example:

    Let see an example of “Services Widget” in the Farad WordPress theme.

    • We have used 8 widgets in the Farad Classic Home Page
      1. Farad Callout
      2. Farad Flexslider (Used Custom Sort)
      3. Farad Text
      4. Farad Services (Used Custom Sort)
      5. Farad Portfolio (Used Custom Sort)
      6. Farad Services (Used Custom Sort)
      7. Farad Staff (Used Custom Sort)
      8. Farad Google Map
    • You will notice that we have used 2 widgets of “Services Custom Post Type” on the same layout and these widgets are displaying different data by using the power of Custom Sort

    Advantages Of Using Custom Sort

    • You can easily use these widgets in different layouts.
    • Adding new data to the respective custom post type will not effect your layout.

    Thanks!
