#16784: Custom post type archive limited
 Reporter:  thomask      |      Owner:
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Post Types   |    Version:  3.1
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 as a new feature of custom post types of 3.1 is option to enable custom
 post type archive using 'has_archive' => true.

 Problem is, that this archive page got few limitations
 1. it is not possible to add it using Nav menus (except direct Custom
 2. if using the standard archive.php page, the common function for getting
 archive page name (e.g. single_tag_title) or description (e.g.
 tag_description) do not work - the best now is to use
 get_queried_object()->name resp. get_queried_object()->description

 Also it is not obvious, that when you create a custom post type and
 taxonomy (with public=true) they are not visible on menu navigation page -
 you must make them visible using the top View menu (it took me a while to
 realize it)
