    1) When I asked about using categories with custom post types you said “If your Custom Post Type can use the default categories (same as the normal posts) Yes you can.”
    I do not see how to enable the default categories for custom post types. How can I enable that?

    2) What is the short code that can display the top rated reviews for a default category as can be done with the top Rated Reviews widget?

    Hi Jamie,

    1) This can be done via the plugin you are using or if you are using a code to generate the Custom Post Type, you maybe can tweak it to by including a taxonomy. (this post may help)

    The best way to do this is by using a plugin like “Types“, it will save you a lot of time and headaches.

    2) There is no shortcode for Top Rated Reviews at this point, it’s only provided via a widget. I plan to add a shortcode in a feature update.
