Support » Plugin: Simple Taxonomy Ordering » Feature request: sort taxonomies for the taxonomy meta box as well

  • Hello, great plugin!
    i would like to request a new feature which is very simple:

    Since i sort my taxonomies, i would like them to show in that order when they appear in the taxonomy meta box as well. Meaning when i edit a post or a custom post type, i would like the taxonomies to show up on the specified order.

    Hey @lab21,

    Unless I’m misunderstanding the request, this is already a feature of the plugin. If your taxonomies are in a different order in the sidebar metabox as pictured below, something else is wrong.

    Let me know if that’s what you have! If you’re not using Gutenberg or WordPress 5.3 your metabox still will look slightly different as well.


    Hey @fmixell thanks for the quick reply!

    I am not using Gutenberg, i do have the latest WP install.

    If i remove the

    if( ! is_admin() )

    from the function yikes_custom_tax_order_front_end_init everything works well.

    Thank is why i made this request…

    I am referring to a custom taxonomy that i created. I checked on a different project as well and it works the same way.



    Yes, this seems to be a deliberate choice: the taxonomies are not ordered if looking at them within the admin interface (comment: “Order the taxonomies on the front end”). Which is where I want to see them reordered! 🙂

    @lab21’s fix makes then reorder for me too, but of course it’ll only survive until the next plugin update. 🙁

    I feel like we’re missing an importing bit of info here, but I’m not sure what it is…
