Assigning CPT as post child to another CPT results in 404 for single-childpost.php
I have two custom post types: movie and screening.
screening is a child of movie, and a movie can have several screenings/children.
(screening is registered as hierarchical, both are publicly queryable)
I’m using this set-up instead of post meta to act as a pseudo-parent mainly because of 2 reasons
- It just seems more logical / wordpress-ish
- Hopefully provides a small performance improvement in db queries as I can just use something like
get_children()instead of querying the post_meta table for multiple $post_parent matches.
However, it seems WP doesn’t like posts with parents from another post type, which leads to a 404 when trying to view single-screening.php
I’ve tried a lot of tweaks to the $args when registering both post types, always flushing the permalinks afterwards (
wp rewrite flush ), some stuff with
add_filter( 'post_type_link' ... ) with no luck so far.
