 If you mean it's not working for custom post types are you correctly
 specifying the post type you want to look up?

 The function signature is:

 `get_page_by_title($page_title, $output = OBJECT, $post_type = 'page')`

 So if you want to retrieve an 'album' post type, for example, you would

 `get_page_by_title( 'Album Title', OBJECT, 'album' )`
