Custom posts sharing common category (5 posts)

    Hi,
    I have created a number of custom posts on my WordPress website. The problem being they are sharing the same categories as the normal posts instead of having their own categorys. If i delete or create a category in the normal posts section, it removes it from the custom posts category too.

    Is there a way so my custom posts can have their own categories?

    Here is the code I created:

    function updates_taxonomy()  {
    
    	$labels = array(
    		'name'                       => _x( 'updates', 'Taxonomy General Name', 'text_domain' ),
    		'singular_name'              => _x( 'update', 'Taxonomy Singular Name', 'text_domain' ),
    		'menu_name'                  => __( 'Community Updates', 'text_domain' ),
    		'all_items'                  => __( 'All ', 'text_domain' ),
    		'parent_item'                => __( 'Parent Update', 'text_domain' ),
    		'parent_item_colon'          => __( 'Parent Update', 'text_domain' ),
    		'new_item_name'              => __( 'New Update Name', 'text_domain' ),
    		'add_new_item'               => __( 'Add New Update', 'text_domain' ),
    		'edit_item'                  => __( 'Edit Update', 'text_domain' ),
    		'update_item'                => __( 'Update Community Update', 'text_domain' ),
    		'separate_items_with_commas' => __( 'Separate Updates with commas', 'text_domain' ),
    		'search_items'               => __( 'Search Updates', 'text_domain' ),
    		'add_or_remove_items'        => __( 'Add or remove Updates', 'text_domain' ),
    		'choose_from_most_used'      => __( 'Choose from the most used Community Updates', 'text_domain' ),
    	);
    	$rewrite = array(
    		'slug'                       => 'community-updates',
    		'with_front'                 => true,
    		'hierarchical'               => true,
    	);
    	$args = array(
    		'labels'                     => $labels,
    		'hierarchical'               => true,
    		'public'                     => true,
    		'show_ui'                    => true,
    		'show_admin_column'          => true,
    		'show_in_nav_menus'          => true,
    		'show_tagcloud'              => false,
    		'query_var'                  => 'update',
    		'rewrite'                    => $rewrite,
    	);
    	register_taxonomy( 'updates', 'post', $args );
    
    }
    
    // Hook into the 'init' action
    add_action( 'init', 'updates_taxonomy', 0 );

    function register_cpt_update() {
    
        $labels = array(
            'name' => _x( 'Updates', 'update' ),

            'description' => 'Community Updates for the community homepage when a user is logged in.',

            'public' => true,
            'show_ui' => true,
            'show_in_menu' => true,
            'menu_position' => 5,
            'show_in_nav_menus' => true,

            'exclude_from_search' => true,
            'has_archive' => true,
            'query_var' => true,
            'can_export' => true,
            'rewrite' => true,
            'capability_type' => 'post'
        );
    
        register_post_type( 'update', $args );
    }

    Thank you

    If anyone could give me a quick pointer, i'd be really grateful.

    Thank you

  3. I use this plugin to create my CPT -
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/sld-custom-content-and-taxonomies/

    Say I'm making a staff directory, I'll use this in my functions.php:

    $directory_args = array(
    			'menu_position' => 40,
    		);
    		sld_register_post_type( 'directory', $directory_args, 'directory' );

    Then I will register the taxonomy for that CPT like so:

    add_action( 'init', 'create_directory_tax' );
    	function create_directory_tax()
    	{
    	   register_taxonomy(
    	      'location',
    	      'directory',
    	      array(
    	         'label' => __( 'Location' ),
    	         'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'location' ),
    	         'hierarchical' => true
    	      )
    	   );}

    This sets the taxonomy on that CPT only.

    cheers. Do you know if this is a problem with " 'taxonomies' => array( 'category', 'updates_taxonomy' )," ??

    Ive never had this problem before, im slightly confused by it.

    The main problem is that the categories i am creating in one specific Custom Post type is also appearing in all of the other post types & Categories.
