Hey there, thank you for this great plugin. There is one problem for me, the post content module is not rendering the paragraph tag properly, i need to manually add the tag in text mode so that the tag is there. i’ve open a support threads, so yeah waiting for the reply 🙂 Edit:Michael (@migaweb) just updated the plugin woohoo!

Hey, the plugin works with custom post types, though it does not seem to work with ACF fields. Regardless of the exact field names, the front end will show just an empty container. Honestly, not a big issue as it can be worked around with some minor coding, but probably worth looking into. I reckon it might have something to do with the global $post variables if you use any as those use the page and not the post it’s meant to display. By creating a custom query I can make the pages display the relevant data, but it should probably be done by the plugin. Still, the bigger issue seems to be related to the meta titles and descriptions which pull though like this while using Yoast or Rank Math: “<title>Template page title instead of post title</title><meta name=”description” content=”Template page meta .elementor-304 .elementor-element.elementor-element-c393822{padding:2em 2em 2em 2em;}.elementor-304″ />”It seems that the meta description pulls through some of the page content as well and they don’t take the actual post data into consideration.

Easy to use. I have set up the look of a custom post type from a glossary plugin within a minute.This would have been a lot of pain without this plugin. Fantastic work!
