WordPress WordPress Theme Development Custom Post Type Templates in WordPress The Portfolio Homepage

page-portfolio.php is not working properly.. and Portfolio is not showing up

The portfolio is not showing the images and permalinks properly. The permalink is supposed to be "/portfolio/pink-triangle/" but it's "/2016/10/16/portfolio/" here. Also, no image is showing up....

Seems like the WP_Query is not working? or "post_type => "portfolio" "is not right?

Can someone please help me and explain if I'm doing something wrong here?

<?php /* Template Name: Portfolio Page */ ?>

<?php get_header(); ?>

<section class="row">
  <div class="small-12 columns text-center">
    <div class="leader">

        <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
          <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
          <?php the_content(); ?>

        <?php endwhile; endif; ?>      


$args = array(
    'post-type' => 'portfolio'
$query = new WP_Query( $args );


<section class="row no-max pad">

<?php if( $query->have_posts() ) : while( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?>
  <div class="small-6 medium-4 large-3 columns grid-item">
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('large'); ?></a>

<?php endwhile; endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>


<?php get_footer(); ?>

I had a similar problem... but forgot the $ before the query on ->the_post();

Problem solved, thanks!

By the way, mine works fine with post-type!
