Custom Fields [meta data] for categories and tags [terms]

    Adding custom form fields to a taxonomy is very clumsy at the moment, but you can use the '{$tax_name}_add_form_fields' hook. Still, this should be easier and built in. +1

    Tax-meta-class.php does that... but this functionality should be the part of wp core !!

    I'm in for this. Or was it included in WP meanwhile? Did I miss something?

    I don't believe I've seen it integrated into the core yet, but would love to see it still.

    Well, we are still waiting for this to be implemented in the core, but no luck yet.

    However, WordPress developer Randy Hoyt has independently continued development of the WP Category Meta plugin, which had not been updated for over two years.

    For more info, check out the following links:

    This is a powerful idea indeed. But it may change the DB structure. I am +1 with it as well however WordPress developers can tell better as categories and tags gets pretty messy when we go in DB.

    This is one of most important idea and requirement in wordpress. There are few plugins like ACF those can help with little coding but it would be better if wordpress have this builtin. thanks

    This definitely should be implemented in the core at some point! +1

    It will be very helpful yes! But, I think, It will be better re-engine Post (and customs), Page, Tax (tags and categs), Users and Comments to become a same kind of object with a special attribute to define their type and another attribute for link objects between them and, of course, able to include any kind of custom meta data for each one. Imagine, you will be able to declare any meta data to any kind of object and use the same WP_Query to work with these objects and able to link any kind of object to other. For example, you will be able to link a comment with a user or a tax; or a user with a Page or category. This last, like Post 2 Post plug-in does, but, till today, for post and users only.
