Add Custom Post Type to Loop (and RSS Feed)

If you’re running a site that functions like a general blog then the below comes in incredibly handy for handling multiple posts types, for example posts, videos, freebies and so on.

The code below says “if this is the RSS feed or the main loop on the blog, then pull in posts and our other custom post type“.

function add_cpt_to_loop_and_feed($query) {
//---- Don't run in admin area
if(!is_admin()) {
// Add custom post types
if ($query->is_feed() || ($query->is_main_query() && $query->is_front_page())) {
$query->set('post_type', array('post', 'MY_CPT'));
// Return query
return $query;
add_action('pre_get_posts', 'add_cpt_to_loop_and_feed');
