I don’t see the SEOPress columns from my custom post type!

You have created a brand new custom post type using a similar code below:

// Register Custom Post Type
function custom_post_type() {

	$labels = array(
		'name'                  => _x( 'Post Types', 'Post Type General Name', 'text_domain' ),
		'singular_name'         => _x( 'Post Type', 'Post Type Singular Name', 'text_domain' ),
		'menu_name'             => __( 'Post Types', 'text_domain' ),
		'name_admin_bar'        => __( 'Post Type', 'text_domain' ),
		'archives'              => __( 'Item Archives', 'text_domain' ),
		'attributes'            => __( 'Item Attributes', 'text_domain' ),

		'add_new'               => __( 'Add New', 'text_domain' ),
		'new_item'              => __( 'New Item', 'text_domain' ),
		'edit_item'             => __( 'Edit Item', 'text_domain' ),
		'update_item'           => __( 'Update Item', 'text_domain' ),
		'view_item'             => __( 'View Item', 'text_domain' ),
		'view_items'            => __( 'View Items', 'text_domain' ),
		'search_items'          => __( 'Search Item', 'text_domain' ),

		'use_featured_image'    => __( 'Use as featured image', 'text_domain' ),
		'insert_into_item'      => __( 'Insert into item', 'text_domain' ),
		'uploaded_to_this_item' => __( 'Uploaded to this item', 'text_domain' ),
		'items_list'            => __( 'Items list', 'text_domain' ),
		'items_list_navigation' => __( 'Items list navigation', 'text_domain' ),
		'filter_items_list'     => __( 'Filter items list', 'text_domain' ),
	);
	$args = array(
		'label'                 => __( 'Post Type', 'text_domain' ),
		'description'           => __( 'Post Type Description', 'text_domain' ),
		'labels'                => $labels,
		'supports'              => false,
		'taxonomies'            => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ),
		'hierarchical'          => false,
		'public'                => true,
		'show_ui'               => true,
		'show_in_menu'          => true,
		'menu_position'         => 5,
		'show_in_admin_bar'     => true,
		'show_in_nav_menus'     => true,
		'can_export'            => true,
		'has_archive'           => true,
		'exclude_from_search'   => false,
		'publicly_queryable'    => true,
		'capability_type'       => 'page',
	);
	register_post_type( 'post_type', $args );

}
add_action( 'init', 'custom_post_type' );

But unfortunately, the SEOPress’ columns are not displayed as expected even if you have enabled them from the Advanced, Appearance settings tab.

The solution is very simple. You have to change the priority of the hook used to register your post type to something lower than 10, which is the default.

Eg: add_action( 'init', 'custom_post_type', 1 );
