I have 2 question about Toolset.

Currently I created custom taxonomy by using toolset. I want to assign separate Archive page. it's possible to assign custom archive-projects.php without installing any other your plugin. Because your plugins is to heavy. Each Plugin size 20+ MB. which take too much load on wordpress.

2nd Question. Can I view Short Code records without installing wp-views plugin? Currently I have [wpv-post-taxonomy type="dubai-area" format="name"] but this short code is not displayed without wp-views.

Please suggestion any other solution or if you have lite version to display only short code please let me know.. Because I can't install 25MB plugins to load on our website.

Hi Arslan,

Thank you for getting in touch.

It is possible as you mention to create the custom archives with the default templating structure that wordpress uses.

For your second question, no it is not possible to use the views shortcodes without having the plugins installed. We do not have a lite version that we can use.

The recommended way to retrieve your custom taxonomy terms without our views plugin is to modify the Post Type template and add the function to get the taxonomy terms.

Please let me know if this helps.
