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

Portfolio thumbnails not showing.

None of the images are showing, not even the broken image icon. I did name my custom field page "Pictures", because "Portfolio" would not work, as some other had noted that Portfolio was already taken in another page setup. So, I'm wondering if I need to change something in what we've just done in this video to reflect that I named my CF page "Pictures."

Here's my code:

        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; ?>       


        $arg = array (
            'post_type' => 'acf_pictures'  
        $query = new WP_Query($args);


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

            if( $query->have_posts() ) : while ( $query->have_posts()) : $query->the_posts;

        <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(); ?>

Appreciate any ideas...

Yeah, how did you figure it out?

Honestly because I have the same issue years ago. There are a couple of great sites to use if run into issues: the codex this is the start this will explain everything that is going on in WordPress. This is another great resource WP dev handbook if you have issues I highly recommend using these two site to trouble shoot.

Christopher Brennan you need to make sure you added theme support for the post_thumbnails function like so:

add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

if you do have this in your functions.php file and its still not working please post your code so we can see what is going on.
