    1) I have been able to create a front end submission dashboard with non-custom posts.

    2) I have been a create a front end submission form for custom posts.

    3) I have not been able to create a front end submission dashboard that will list the custom posts.
    I couldn't find documentation for the [mb_frontend_dashboard] shortcode that explains how to use it with custom posts.

    Thanks, James

    Tested - that wasn`t the problem 🙁


    I have exactly the same issue.

    Everything is well setup on website and the shortcode does not display the cutom post. Only the default post.
    I use the shortcode like that:
    [mb_frontend_dashboard edit_page="190" post_type="agent"]
    with page id=190, the page where I have the form [mb_frontend_form id='fields-for-agent' ]
    and post_type is "agent".

    I have deactivated all my plugins (I have very few), my theme is very basic (hello theme). I use elementor and elementor pro. I tried to deactivate them and still get the same issue.

    I don't know what to do.

    Hi guys,

    There is a difference between the double quote " "190" and quotation mark ” ”190″. Please type the double quote correctly.

    [mb_frontend_form id="fields-for-agent" post_type="agent"]

    and the attribute post_type is used in the shortcode [ mb_frontend_form ]


    Thank you. It works. Everything is now in double quote.

    For your info, the shortcode given by the plugin uses simple quotes: [mb_frontend_form id='fields-for-agent' post_fields='title,content']

    Here is a screenshot:

    So it's very confusing.

    Hi, I'm having the same problem. I am using the shortcode
    [mb_frontend_dashboard edit_page='1819' post_type='speaker-profile']
    to display a user dashboard of posts of the CPT speaker-profile but the output is of the standard WP posts.

    I have tested by switching themes to Twenty Twenty-One as shown in the screenshot below and disabling plugins but nothing changes.

    I have been through this forum discussion and applied everything suggested but still no luck.


    Hi. Use double quotes instead of simple quotes and it should work.

    Thanks Ulysse but that was one of the suggestions made during this discussion and I tried it already but it doesn't make any difference.

    1. You tried this? :
      [mb_frontend_dashboard edit_page="1819" post_type="speaker-profile"]

    be aware there is a difference between ' '' and "

    1. Try to use the shortcode on a page not edited with elementor.

    Ok, just tried that, using a straightforward Gutenberg block:

    The result, sadly, is still the same:

    Hi Patrick,

    The post type attribute should be added in the shortcode frontend submit to make the dashboard works.

    [mb_frontend_form post_fields="title,content" post_type="speaker-profile"]
