Just coming back to this question – am I right in thinking that the Beta release of the most recent version of GeneratePress pro now enables this ability to pull in custom post type fields?

Thanks for the great plugin.
I have a related problem/question to the one above hence sticking it on here rather than in a fresh topic/thread..
I am trying to create a page with a restaurant menu on it. I’d like to pull the following content: dish title, short description, price and ‘add to cart’ button. I can’t seem to find a way to do it – is that because this integration with WPSP and Woo is still in development?
Ideally, I’d also like to make it so the title of the dish isn’t a clickable link as there isn’t really any relevant ‘read more’ information (it’s all in the short description). Customers will have to adjust quantities in the cart I think.
My hope is to find a solution that is simpler than using something like Beaver Themer which is my other likely avenue of enquiry.
Can you suggest a work around?
Thank you very much for taking the time to watch the video and for the information above.
I may get stuck with implementing the bit where you say ‘hook those custom fields into the posts’ but if so I’ll be back – off to research a bit before admitting defeat.
GeneratePress and related plugins by you are such an excellent starting point for me as they make it very possible/motivating to learn this more complex stuff.
Thank you, as always.
I have created a short loom video to explain what I’m trying to do – it’s the easiest way I can find of sharing the info with you. I’ll send you the link via your contact page.
Right, back again…
Beaver Themer Pods Integration Slack Channel advised clearing cache for BeaverThemer and also PODS. Have now done this and PODS fields are now showing up in Beaver Themer layouts again which is a relief. I still can’t get it all connect with WPShowPosts.
My ideal would be to use a static (and non Beaver Builder/Themer) page – just the standard GeneratePress Pro page with WPShowPosts for this particular events round up page. It’s only going to work if it’s possible for WPShowPosts to pick up custom post types set up within PODS and I’m not sure if that’s a) totally impossible or b) I have missed out a step that would instruct WPShowPosts to recognise these PODS fields.
They are descriptions (not the official names) of the custom field set up in PODS. I have about 20 custom fields in the pod – everything from code for iframe google map code, urls for links to organisations running events, a field for speakers, two time fields for start and end time, etc.
I’m trying to use those fields to populate a static page with ‘the next three events’ that are coming up. And I’m trying to use WPShowPosts to do that but it may be the wrong tool, I’m not sure.
I seem – on having looked closer – to have a bigger problem with the PODS not connecting to Beaver Themer. It may be that there is some plugin conflict – I wasn’t aware of this issue when I first posted here yesterday so I’m looking into that now to see if there’s something I’ve done that has completely disconnected the PODS and made them in accessible to both Beaver Themer and WP Show Posts.
In principle, though, if I have set up the POD correctly should WPShowPosts pick up the fields in the custom post types created by a POD?
