Thesis Custom Post Type Template Question WordPress

I have a problem which I don't know is possible or not. From what I've seen so far, it doesn't seem like it can be done, but I need verification.

I created a plugin which is a custom post type, the problem I'm running into is users who are using Thesis as their theme.

Thesis has it's own templating system which is different from the standard WordPress system.

I'm currently pulling in wp_head() an wp_footer() but when I do that I lose all template formatting from the Thesis theme.

I've tried using Thesis hooks, but I haven't managed to insert my CPT content created from my plugin. In all other themes my plugin works fine.

I'm trying to do this WITHOUT using the Custom Functions Area in thesis, I just want it to work off what I code in the Custom Post Type template for ease of use for the end user.

Any ideas on this?

Arnav Joy answers:

so your problem is wp_head() and wp_footer() not working in thesis


Armand Morin comments:

No, wp_head() and wp_footer() is working fine. I'm trying to create a custom post type template inside of Thesis which uses a different type of theming instead of the standard WordPress theming protocol.

Hello Armand,

I can work on this, in fact I have two websites that I currently make using thesis theme.
You need to use add hooks, and edit the custom_function to display your CPT.
This link very helpful on how to use add hooks in thesis theme.
