Support » Plugin: Post Types Unlimited » Custom Taxonomy for WooCommerce

  • Resolved birdhousedigital


    Hi. I’m using Unlimited Post Types to create a custom taxonomy for WooCommerce. I need the taxonomy to also query the post type “product_variation” as well as “product”. Is this possible with this plugin?

    This is AJ the plugin author. Do you mean you want to assign the taxonomy to the “product_variation” post type under here?

    If so, unfortunately it’s not possible by default because the product_variation post type is not “public” by default (see the codex).

    You would either need to hook into “woocommerce_taxonomy_args_product_visibility” to make the product_variation post type public or you would need to assign it to the post type using some code like this:

    add_action( 'init', function() {
        register_taxonomy_for_object_type( 'YOUR_TAX', 'product_variation' );
    } );

    See CODEX

    I believe that should work, but not 100% sure.
