Support » Plugin: Display Widgets » Custom Taxonomies Not Available As Checkable Items

  • Hi there, I have two custom taxonomies I’ve created in my functions.php file and neither of them appear in Display Widgets’ list of selectable items. I thought maybe I was missing an arg, but I tweaked them without success. Is there a trick to getting custom taxonomies to show up? Here’s an example of my code:

    add_action( 'init', 'create_image_type_taxonomies', 0 );
    function create_image_type_taxonomies() {
        'public' => true,
        'hierarchical' => false,
        'labels' => $labels,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'update_count_callback' => '_update_post_term_count',
        'query_var' => true,
        'show_admin_column' => true,
        'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'image-type' ),

  • Hi, I appear to be having the same problem when adding another taxonomy to posts. There is no option to select taxonomies within the widget (like there is for Categories +/-), therefore I am unable to get a widget to display on the taxonomy pages. Any ideas?

            'hierarchical' => true,
            'labels' => array(
                'name' => 'Topics',
                'singular_name' => 'Topic',
                'search_items' =>  'Search Topics',
                'all_items' => 'All Topics',
                'parent_item' => 'Parent Topic',
                'parent_item_colon' => 'Topic Location',
                'edit_item' => 'Edit Topic',
                'update_item' => 'Update Topic',
                'add_new_item' => 'Add New Topic',
                'new_item_name' => 'New Topic Name',
                'menu_name' => 'Topics',
            'rewrite' => array(
                'slug' => 'news/topic',
                'with_front' => false,
                'hierarchical' => true

    You’ll need to deactivate and reactivate to clear the 7 day cache. It doesn’t clear unless you add flush rewrite.
