How to add custom field value as taxonomy (1 post)

    Hi,
    I am little bit confuse about how to use this plugin. I couldn't find any documentation on how to use it. I am wondering if this plugin can fit my need.

    I creating a real estate platform where allow users to add their listing. The users are people who may not know how to using wp platform, so I make it as easy as possible for them to make a post. Thanks for the custom post type, I manage to create a post type that specifically for add listing. In this post type, there are many custom fields to store the necessary information like location, property type and etc...

    Since I make it simple to use, so I didn't use the categories to sort the posts. However, what I like to do is let the custom field values as the taxonomies. For example:
    [States] <- this is custom field in select/radio type
    [state 1] <- this is custom field value option for states
    [state 2] <- this is custom field value option for states
    [state 3] <- this is custom field value option for states
    [state 4] <- this is custom field value option for states
    [etc...] <- this is custom field value option for states

    So I want to sort the posts according to the value in State that user selected. My idea is to make each of the value [[state 1],[state 2],[state 3]...] to be the categories in the frontend.

    My question is, does this plugin able to achieve this? I tried this plugin by converting the States into categories, but when I click on that category link, there are no associated post show in that page. .

    Maybe I am misunderstanding this plugin feature. Correct me if I am wrong. To be honest, I am not quite sure how custom taxonomy work in WP.
