Advanced Custom Fields - Taxonomy Field add-on

Adds a Taxonomy Field to Advanced Custom Fields. Select one or more taxonomy terms and assign them to the post.

This is an add-on for the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin and will not provide any functionality to WordPress unless Advanced Custom Fields is installed and activated.

The taxonomy field provides a select, multi-select or checkboxes of taxonomy terms (categories, tags, custom taxonomies...) and the ability to map the selected terms to the post. The post type must support the taxonomy for the mapping to work. The taxonomy field currently does not provide the ability to add new terms to a taxonomy. The return type of the get_value() api can be changed in the field settings.
