Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Custom Taxonomy – Show in REST, Hide in Gutenberg

  • Resolved swift


    I’ve created a custom taxonomy for my custom post type, but I have built a custom interface for assigning the tax (a drop-down as I want only max 1 term assigned) as part of a metabox for the CPT. I want to show the taxonomy in the Admin UI so it’s easy to add/edit terms, but I want to hide the default chooser panel for the tax on the custom post type. In the classic editor, setting ‘meta_box_cb’ => false does the trick, is there any similar way to do this in Gutenberg? I want to show the taxonomy in REST so I can build my custom selector functionality so I set ‘show_in_rest’ => true, but then I get the default chooser in Gutenberg too (in its own panel under Document in the Inspector). how can I remove this?
