We would like to use PTB with Visual Composer as Post Grid.
Everything works fine when we try to display title, featured image, category or content text. Even custom fields with texts are working good.
But when we try to add an extra image or calendar field, it shows nothing. We tried to put as ptb_metaname or directly metaname. It didn’t work.
How can we put an image or Calendar values to this post grid of visual composer?
Please allow us to look into this. Do you mind contacting us here – https://themify.me/contact so that one of our developers can provide you with more accurate support? Thank you so much for your patience.
Hi. I have a metabox/custom field with a web address that I would like to use for the title and image link instead of the default which goes to a new detail page. How can I make the title and image use the metabox/custom field of the web address and skip the detail page altogether? Thanks!
You can do this as you create/set-up the template for the custom post type. We can provide you with more detail about this if you’d like Send us an email at info[at]themify.me
I have emailed you about another issue and a ticket regarding this question and neither have been addressed yet. Disappointing.
Did you email it to our info email? What’s your email or username? so that we can find it. We can’t seem to find it.
Yes, emailed to the email you gave me above. I just emailed you through Envato with my email and name. Your support has really gone down hill, thats a shame.
Can you just answer me here?
By default, the title and featured image is linked to the post permalink. If you want to have custom text/image link, use the link button and image field type. In the PTB template, instead of dropping in the title and featured image module, drop in the link button and image module.
If I want to link a meta box, how do I add the code?
To do that, you would need PTB Extra Fields (https://themify.me/ptb-addons/extra-fields) along with PTB. There is a “Link Button” field type in Extra Fields which allow you to insert custom links/buttons.
Here is what I still need instructions on how to do, link the title to a new web address: http://prntscr.com/grgwbt
Please check the forum ticket where we responded this question. If you have further question, please reply the same forum ticket on our site.
Is there a way to add a space in the template, the template modules are to close together.
Yes, there is. Please allow us to help you with this. Do you mind contacting us here – https://themify.me/contact and include your site URL?
Amazing! 5 stars. I’m liking what I see so far, very easy to use. Thank you!!

Is the plugin compatible with Wordpress 4.8+ ?
Yes, the Post Type Builder is compatible with the latest WordPress version.
Hi, I’m trying to create a masonry layout for the archive template but the only options I see are 1 list and 3 grid options, no masonry option. Is it possible to create a masonry template?
Also is it possible to combine multiple post types in the shortcut on a page? I had to create 2 different post types for my Projects as I have 2 types of projects that contain different fields to fill out (post type 1 = research projects, post type 2 = commercial projects). I would, however, like to have 1 Projects page that lists both post types by date then have filter for refining by research or commercial
At the moment, this is not possible to do with the archive template builder. However, if you’re using our theme (ie. Ultra). You’ll be able to do this. We can provide you with more detail on how to do this via email Please contact us here – https://themify.me/contact.
Hi. this plugin create a file for any template or just use the blog single post template??
It’s creates a template for both single and archive post template.
no I mean if the plugin create a new file for each post type or just override the existing archive and single files? for example if we want a template without this sidebar.
Yes, this is possible. The template will overlap the current archive and single post template that’s built in with the theme. Please allow us to provide you with more details about this. Do you mind sending us an email here – https://themify.me/contact ?

There is no option to disable the image link, does anyone know how to disable it?

Also, when loading a post into lightbox the spinning loading indicator features some sort of islamic symbol – how can I remove this I don’t want it on my site.
We can help you with these. Could you send your site URL along with the details of the issues to firstname.lastname@example.org?
So I have created a post type and started creating my items. I was wondering I can see a import/export option. How do I download a template of my new post type and items so I can fill it in to export?
The import/export option actually applies to the entire post type that you’ve created. So when you import/export a post type it’ll import/export not only the post type but also the single/archive templates that you’ve created for it. Unfortunately, you’re not able to download just a template of a post type. It comes together with a post type because each post type comes with it’s own fields.
Hope we were able to answer your question clearly. If you need any further clarification with anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email at info[at]themify.me.
Will I be able to create a custom post type and layout like this bellow?
Technically you can achieve that with the PTB template builder. There are options to select each row up to 6-column: https://cl.ly/2Y3i310k1q3X.
Can I use this plug in to create a custom post type for a product. like if i am making an online store will i be able to create my own product post type? if so, am i able to add tabs as well?
Yes, this is possible. However, to be certain we provide you with more accurate response. Do you mind sending us your site URL and the product you’d like to feature via email here – https://themify.me/contact ? This will allow us to better investigate and provide you a more accurate answer.
oh ok, there is no website yet and there will be several products. i just wanted to check and see before i buy the plug in.
do you by any chance have a trial or demo that i can use?
Also does it work with other themes, or just your theme?
Please send us an email via our contact form with your request and we’ll see what we can do for you Thank you for your patience.
so it only works on your theme? not other themes?
This plugin works on any Wordpress theme. Not just on our theme

evanto’s support link for your plugin brings a person here - http://themify.me/contact?envato_item_id=11833291 - which is what I used. You might want to fix that.
Hi can you tell me where the custom post types are saved on the server? I need to add a short code for another plugin to work and the developer as asked I add it to the custom post type .php. Thanks
The custom post types created with PTB are stored in the database. It doesn’t generate PHP files on the server. If you have further question, feel free to contact us via: https://themify.me/contact. Give us more details on what you need to achieve.
Hi I have messaged you and not had a reply back, it seems shortcodes don’t work within Post Type Builder.
Apologies for the delay. Please give a few moments and we’ll be sure to look into this and respond to your email.
Did you find my email?
Pre-purchase question… I want to use this to create a ‘funeral notice’ (obituary) section on my website.
1 – If I want to include the funeral date as a field, will I need to purchase the ‘Extra Field’s plugin?
2 – Will I be able to use the shortcode generator to generate shortcodes to show “future funerals” and “past funerals” (based on the ‘funeral date’ set in 1. above). I.e. if ‘Funeral Date >= today’s date’ .... to display upcoming funerals.
Please allow me to answer your questions below:
1. Not necessarily. Since you can add a Text meta box on the Meta Box Builder. However, if you would like to add a date picker to add uniformity on how it’ll appear on your post type then yes. The Extra Fields PTB addon has the Date meta box that adds a calendar picker option – https://themify.me/ptb-addons/extra-fields.
2. Yes, this is possible. With the Shortcode generator you can set various parameters based on the meta fields that you created.
Hope that answers your questions. If you need any further clarification with anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us here – https://themify.me/contact.
The plugins looks exactly what I need! I have one question before I buy.
Can I add the meta information in the page content?
For example, I want to create a template using visual composer. Now, I create a template using something like meta keys or shortcodes, can I put I then insert this information I filled in the admin panel so it displays automatically in the template?
Yes, you can run shortcodes within the custom fields.
