In this article, we cover a typical issue with WordPress custom post types (taxonomy). If the custom post type creates an actual page, then it will probably need its own template to fit nicely into your theme. The two videos below (Part 1 & Part 2), demonstrate how we create a template for the details page
In this section, we will cover how you would go about 1) Diagnosing the issue 2) Identifying the missing html and 3) Hypothesize a fix for the issue.
Its important to note that every theme is different. So the approach will be the same, but the exact solution will not. For example, the example theme in the videos uses lots of div’s which are an html element. They could have easily used “spans” or a host of other options.

Part 2 covers how to implement and test your solution. This approach will work for any wordpress plugin which creates pages via a custom post type aka taxonomy
