towhid I've created a custom post type - listings - for a real estate website and I've created a form through WP Frontend that corresponds with this post type. The post type for the form is set as "listings" and the post status is set as "published". The problem is that even though I see the submitted post in the backend and I see it on the posts page (where all the excerpts are shown), I can't see the individual single post. If I try to go to it, it says page not found 404. I've used this plugin on other forms and custom post types with great success, so I'm not sure what I'm missing here since I'm not really doing anything different. Please help! Thank you! In case this matters - this is how I've set up my custom post type in my custom.php file:
// Property Custom Post Type
function cpt_listings() {

	$labels = array(
		'name'                => 'Listings',
		'singular_name'       => 'Listing',
		'menu_name'           => 'Listing',
		'parent_item_colon'   => 'Parent Listing:',
		'all_items'           => 'All Listings',
		'view_item'           => 'View Listing',
		'add_new_item'        => 'Add New Listing',
		'add_new'             => 'Add New',
		'edit_item'           => 'Edit Listing',
		'update_item'         => 'Update Listing',
		'search_items'        => 'Search Listings',
		'not_found'           => 'Not found',
		'not_found_in_trash'  => 'Not found in Trash',
	$args = array(
		'label'               => 'listings',
		'description'         => 'Your listings in custom post format',
		'labels'              => $labels,
		'supports'            => array( 'title', 'editor', 'excerpt', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'comments', 'trackbacks', 'revisions', 'custom-fields', 'page-attributes', 'post-formats', ),
		'taxonomies'          => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ),
		'hierarchical'        => false,
		'public'              => true,
		'show_ui'             => true,
		'show_in_menu'        => true,
		'show_in_nav_menus'   => true,
		'show_in_admin_bar'   => true,
		'menu_position'       => 5,
		'can_export'          => true,
		'has_archive'         => true,
		'exclude_from_search' => false,
		'publicly_queryable'  => true,
		'capability_type'     => 'post',
	register_post_type( 'listings', $args );


// Hook into the 'init' action
add_action( 'init', 'cpt_listings', 0 );

Hello RJ,

I have reproduced this problem but did not get any inconsistency.

Please check below screenshot of backend after submitting the post:

Here is the screenshot after submitting the listing form post.

Actually it turns out that I needed to update the permalinks, that is what was causing the problem. Thanks for your help!
