Post-type powered custom group front page
So the group ‘bicycles’ populates its frontpage with content from the page ‘bicycles’ (which is a child page of ‘groups’).
I am now upgrading the site to the Canvas theme by woothemes and would like to use their built-in portfolio custom post type with its nice gallery feature to do the same thing. Following the old rules, I set up things just as before. Then I re-registered the ‘portfolio’ post type as ‘groups’ and copied the single-portfolio.php file content into my groups front.php. Then a created a bunch of portfolio items with names matching existing bp groups.
The result is that instead of displaying the custom-post-type content, the group front page displays the content of the group again. I assume this is happening because of the way the new theme compatibility hijacks the_content(). That would mean that when it sees the_content() in front.php, it loads the group again rather than the post content.
Am I on the right track? Any suggestions on how to either fix my problem or take a new approach altogether?
