Hi there!
 
I'm here as a reply to Larry as he suggested to put this on the forum.
 
 
So I’m not sure I’m doing this the best way - I had followed a tutorial to the best of my ability using the content I wanted to include. But here’s the point I reached

I created an archive directory using a post type called ‘Universities”. (Figure 1)
 
I want each listing link to go to a single posting directory that I’ve created for each school that looks like this (there’s just one listing in this example) which contains another listing grid for article listings (figure 2)
 
figure 3 is the display conditions for the figure 2 single posting.
 
Now when I click on the “McMaster University” listing, it takes me to this page (figure 4)
 
I would assume that setting the display conditions for that single posting would show up once I set the right display conditions. Is there something I’m missing here?

Thank you!

Hi Joshua,
Thanks for posting here. 
 
So it sound like you've created an archive template for the custom post type, Universites. If the elementor conditions screen you sent is from an archive template, then you should set the last dropdown to all. 
 
Have you created a Single Post template in the theme builder yet? If so, when you created your single post template did you choose Sinlge and your custom post type? See screenshot.

Hi!
 
Thanks for the fast reply!
 
I think it's a little more complicated than that. I can first layout what I'm trying to do to give you a better understanding of what I'm trying to build
 
 
Page 1: University listing grid in an archive template  to display university directory
 
Page 2 (Once you select a university): it takes you to the articles displayed under that university, which is "single" template containing the listing grid of articles.The articles are actually under ANOTHER post type I created called "post article" and the listing grid (see "My McMaster UNiversity Experience") is derived from said post type . I want to have articles that represent each school categorized on each University post type page. 
 
I'm guess I'm trying to connect these 2 post types together?
 
If I set the 2nd bar to "all" it won't recognize which university (post-type) to show each post article (post-type). That's why I created a taxonomy and set the post-query to include "mcMaster university" to only include post articles that have the McMaster University taxonomy. 
 
I'm sorry if this sounds confusing. Thanks so much for your help though!
 
Josh

What are you using to create your CPTs? Maybe they offer post relationships? Toolset does a good job at post type relationships. 
 
The university archive template should be set to "universities archives", when setting conditions. I don't think you should be seeing options to assign an archive template to a particular post. See screenshot. 
 
It sounds like you need 1 archive template assiged to "universities archive" (same screenshot) and 1 single university template assiged to all universiites. 

Then create 1 archive template assigned to "post article archive" and 1 single post article template assigned to all post articles. 
 
The university archive template will list all universities and link to the single university template. The single university template will contain the post article archive template that will list related post articles that links to single post article template. 
 
let me know if this helps..

Hi there,
 
I appreciate your explanation.
 
I'm currently using JetEngine as my plugin for creating custom post types.
 
I rearranged the listing conditions as you mentioned (see screenshot). It looks like clicking on a university post type still leads to the same error. It doesn't sound like there's anything connecting the universities post-type and the post articles post type based on your instructions. For example, how does the McMaster University post type page know to display the single Post Article archive template?
 
So a navigation example would be:
 
University archive (which i created a page for) -> Post article archive within that university -> post article single template 
 
I've figured out getting the post article single to work for their post type. It's just connecting the university archive to the post type archive so that each university can display their corresponding articles.
 
Thank You
