Select All Categories and Taxonomies, Change Checkbox to Radio Buttons


Allows you to change the checkboxes in the taxonomy metabox to Radio buttons, Checkbox or Checkbox with Select All possibility.

You can switch between displaying taxonomies, even custom taxonomies in different ways.

The “select all” functionality can be enabled only if the taxonomy display type is checkbox.

This plugin was developed by Moove Agency.

Very helpful. Easy to use.

Thanks Moove for this handy plugin. Haven’t used it long but it helps with clients who are having trouble with Categories / Custom Taxomies. This helps with the confusion. If you’re a developer, this is a handy little tool to install before handing off a website to a client.

Great but could be better

Great plugin, my only suggestion/request is for you to allow the radio button functionality to carry over to the Quick Edit option on the post listing. They still show as checkboxes when the post edit page shows radio buttons.
