CMB2 Taxonomy

Description

CMB2 Taxonomy will create metaboxes and forms with custom fields for your taxonomies using the CMB2 API (and yes, it will blow your mind too).

This plugin adds an additional table for term’s metadata storage following the metadata patterns which means that eventhough we add an extra table we still using the metadata API. Check the Usage section for more information.

To get started, please follow the examples in the included example-functions.php file and have a look at the basic usage instructions.

You can see a list of available field types here.
