Support » Fixing WordPress » Custom Post Type missing categories on the right?

  • We have a custom post type that we created and imported in bulk into it from a legacy database format. All that’s done and everything’s working great.

    The only thing we cannot figure out is why in the WP admin on the right side, when you edit a post, we cannot see categories to pick from. Any ideas on a custom post type flag or something that I haven’t been able to locate?

  • It’s probably because you haven’t registered the taxonomy. You should take a look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_taxonomy

    Well, we had planned to just have this post type use categories that already existed in the rest of WordPress…rather than creating a new taxonomy with the same content (seems redundant).

    Just thought that picking a category from the right side would be default enabled or something. Maybe I’m a little lost 🙂

    There has to be a way to do this. I had it working a week ago by accident, but not sure how I actually did it. That’s the problem.

    Regular posts already have a very large number of nested categories setup. I’m just hoping I can get this new custom post type to use those legacy categories. Only when I go into WP Admin and edit a post, I don’t see the categories on the right side like normal.

    Yes, I checked the screen options at the top. Categories isn’t listed 🙂
