How does the single page work. Is it styled the same way as a blog or portfolio item?

Hello, Single page is built by Fusion Builder. So, it will look like you built it. Out plugin does not affect it.

Does this work with multisite?

If Avada with its Fusion Builder works with multisite then our plugin does as well.

Excellent. Thank you.

I am using already Post Type Builder plugin on Avada. 1) How will your plugin help me? I looked at the demo but could not quite understand what to make of it.

2) Is it complementary to Post Type Builder plugin (or Toolset plugin?) or is it a full featured Custom Post Type plugin?

Thanks in advance, - GM


1) The main value of our plugin is rendering custom content (post types and taxonomies) using the existing Avada styles.

If you use any generic plugin for templating like Post Type Builder you may have a hard time making it look like the rest of your site. With our plugin, your list or grid of custom content will look like the Blogs or Portfolios helping users to have the same experience regardless the type of content they are viewing.

2) It is Not a full featured custom post type plugin. There are enough free ones for creating post types like “Custom Post Type UI”. Our plugin helps to visualize what you have created.


Will this plugin allow me to show entries from a CPT instead of blog posts on the Avada Timeline (Fusion Builder > + Element > Blog > Layout > Timeline)?

Thanks, rt.

Hi, Yes it will show CPT in Timeline layout the same way as it would show standard blog.

Hi, would this plugin help me display posts using the avada portfolio layout? I would like to be able to dynamically filter posts in different categories. Thanks

Hi, yes you can do this if you use Avada 5+

Any try before buy possibilities. Happy to purchase if it does what I need.

Unfortunately, we can’t’ provide demo version as there is not protection build in this software. However, you can request a refund via Envato if what I stated above will not work.

Hello, when I buy your Plugin, does also the Fusion Pagination work with my Custom Post Types?

Regards Marc

Yes sure it will work exactly like with blogs.

Pre-purchase question: will this plugin help me make Learndash elements (buttons, dropdowns, widgets…) take on Avada defaults? I’d like to avoid having to style them separately from the rest of the site, with CSS, as I’m having to do now. Thanks!

No, this plugin does not do it and I doubt any plugin can do it. To achieve it there should be some agreement for CSS class names between two companies.

Ok then, I’ll just keep on tweaking!

Post type drop down doesn’t include page. Is there anyway to include it?

I managed to add it myself, by adding it to the array $custom_post_types_default = array(‘post’=> ‘post’,’page’=> ‘page’); but could you include it, in an update so the change doesn’t get overwritten.

Yes. We used to have page in the previous versions but it somehow got removed. I will make sure it is there again. Thanks for pointing this out.

Hi, in CPT Portfolio, is it possible to select a specific post tag but then use filter by category?

No, but you can pre-filter posts by categories and then use only pre-filtered categories in the filter.

I bought this plugin and it shows me well the portfolio that I have in CPT but the Avada page does not work neither with the load more button and the infinite scroll button, which can happen, regards

You need to make sure you are using Avada 5.1.6 and CPT 4.1
Like with any software you need to keep Avada and plugin versions in sync as changes in Avada may affect plugin work. So if you you have Avada 5.x you need to upgrade plugin each time you upgrade Avada.

It’s solved. Thanks!

Good evening, I wanted to ask some questions before buying, i have the theme as avada last version, for the sake I had to create a custom post with the custom post-type ui plugin, the problem is that using fusion builder, do not let me enter custom posts Type (recipe) in the home. Does your plugin solve the problem? My home page is https://www.piattogoloso.it Thanks in advance for the answer

Hello. I am not sure I fully understand your question. Can you please provide more details by e-mail to support@amunet.biz

Not compatible with Avada 5.2. Need an update please ;)

Problem fixed:

in fusion-portfolio-cpt.php @ line 966: add ’/’ in URL:

BEFORE: ‘preview’ => FUSION_CORE_PATH . ‘shortcodes/previews/fusion-portfolio-preview.php’,

AFTER: ‘preview’ => FUSION_CORE_PATH . ’/shortcodes/previews/fusion-portfolio-preview.php’,

Hi, It’s compatible with Avada 5.2.1 ?

Hi, Yes it is.

Are you sure? Why did I buy the cptt5-2 fusion plugin but after updating Avada to verisone 5.2.1 and after updating Fusion Core the site had only white page and I had this PHP error Fatal error: Class ‘FusionCore_Plugin’ not found in / var /www/vhosts/xxxx.xx/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/fusion_cptt/includes/fusion-portfolio-cpt.php on line 1107. Now I’ve removed the plugin and everything works regularly. Can you help me solve the problem?

You need to first deactivate or remove CPT plugin before upgrading Avada. This is because our plugin depends on Fusion Builder and can’t work without it. If you now install the CPT plugin back again everything will be fine. The full upgrade instructions are here

Okay, okay now. thank you. I also created fields in the post-type custon with ACF. Is there a way to activate the fields as a meta info? For example I have a CTP Teacher and a Field Specialization. I would like to see the specialization as if it were the field author.

This is not possible without custom development. If you would like to get more details about custom development send the request to support@amunet.biz

I am working on a website for a client. We are using other plugins with the Avada theme.

The one plugin is a map plugin which displays Member locations. The map locations are created from the members post. Along with the map location markers it also displays the POST CONTENT. It works fine by displaying the post content if I DO NOT USE Fusion Builder to create the post. If I use Fusion Builder (content box with a text element) it displays/feeds the RAW CODE of fusion builder. If I use the post excerpt, the text will display correctly.. The member’s single post’s page itself displays correctly using the Fusion Builder.

I realize you do not support other plugins like the Progress Map Wordpress Plugin. I am asking whether your plugin will correct the Fusion Builder Post problem in how it feeds its content?


Can you please send this request to support@amunet.biz with the link to the map plugin and screenshots of what is wrong with it.

Pre-purchase question: will this plugin could use widgets like “categories”, “recent posts” or other kind of widgets with CPT?

Hi. I am not sure what you mean by widgets. Our plugin adds two elements to the Fusion Builder which are similar to Blog and Portfolio but work with custom content. You can describe your case in detail and send it to support@amunet.biz so that we could tell you if it will work or not.

Hello. Great plugin. I have two custom post types. Is it possible to display them both together in Portfolio CPT element?

Hello, thanks. Currently this is not supported without custom development.

Thanks for your quick reply. Is it possible to display multiple Portfolio CPT’s in nestled columns to achieve the same effect? Meaning, I want to display two different CPT’s on the homepage – so they appear to be integrated in one element. Thanks.

If you need to have one filter for two CPTs you need to make sure two CPTs have the same Taxonomy and modify the script. So it is more a logic issue rather then just a visualization .

Dear author, beside selecting which custom post type, does this plugin allow me to indicate the orderby and order parameters for how the posts are display/retrieve?


What I mean is this: For my case I need to use the Portfolio shortcode on a number of pages. Say for Page 1, I would need the order to be random, on Page 2, I need it to be by Title ASC, on page 3 by Date DESC, etc. Would your plugin help with these? – Thanks.

the above mentioned plugin will help with ordering. Our plugin helps with using Portfolio with other post types

ok thanks.

Hi, prepurchase question. Does the plugin work with avada tabs widget as well? Specifically with popular posts and recent posts?

Hi, No, we do not currently suppor recent or popular posts
