Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » How to make custom taxonomy appear on Gutenberg-enabled post types?

  • Resolved David Decker


    Hi there!
    How can I make a custom taxonomy appear on Gutenberg-enabled post types?
    – the custom taxonomy already has Rest API enabled at registering
    – this taxonomy is “only” needed internally for organizing purposes (users set it on editing a post/post type, and then can filter for taxonomies in the post type overview table)
    – I am totally fine with either result: a Gutenberg-powered JS type of “meta box” or the classic legacy meta box which Gutenberg can/should render…

    I tried a lot of code snippets in the last weeks but none of them worked (I guess most were a few months old, and Gutenberg changed things in the last weeks?). Then I did find out that Gutenberg in the whole area of “Meta Box” support strips out meta boxes from custom taxonomies.

    This is really bad and should not be the case. I found they have a filter available but I cannot cope with it currently as their used terminology is not entirely clear to me at what this filter really does and how:
    1) Do I rather need my taxonomy remove from the stripping out of Gutenberg?
    2) Do I need to explicitely add my taxonomy somewhere so Gutenberg will render the “legacy” meta box?

    In general I am fine in working with filters as I do plugins myself 😉 However in this special case I am totally struggleing with it as it is not clear how to me how Gutenberg works in this area.

    Thanks for any tips and help to point me in the right direction!
