Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Issues with Elementor and Pods Taxonomies

    (@gamicord)


    Hello Sir,
    I have this small challenge:

    I created a Post Type in Pods called Recipes. Then I started to create Recipes.

    I also created Custom Taxonomies, and I’ve created items/terms under these Taxonomies. for example–under Mealtime Taxonomy, I have Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and Dinner.

    In creating a Single Page Template in Elementor, I couldn’t find any way to pull Pods Taxonomies which I created onto the Page.

    Any ideas?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You may need to associate the taxonomy with the Custom Post Type under Edit Pod > Advanced Options > Built-in Taxonomies checkboxes, rather than using a relationship field. This may allow the taxonomies to show up in the Elementor builder.

    See this post: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-only-one-taxonomy-with-elementor/#post-11346116

    I actually did associate the Taxonomy to the Post Type. See it here– https://prntscr.com/19ncxir

    But I don’t see a way to select the Taxonomy in Elementor. Now, while in the Elementor Editor, I can select Post Terms. See it here — https://prntscr.com/19nek6x

    And once I do this, it asks me to select a Key. And the Key is to select between Categories and Tags.

    But in the same Elementor Editor, there’s no option to select Pods Terms, where we can then select between Category-like or Tag-like Taxonomies. There’s only the option to select between Pods Field or Date field. See it here– https://prntscr.com/19nfkxj

    So this means I can’t use Pods in my Elementor Designs?

    Might be a question best for Elementor support.

    According to https://elementor.com/help/intro-to-dynamic-content/ , Custom Taxonomies should appear in Dynamic Content. When associated with the checkboxes, there’s no significant difference between a Pods custom taxonomy and a custom taxonomy registered manually with register_taxonomy().

    If Elementor support doesn’t have any leads, one of these paid Elementor widgets may offer a solution:
    https://crocoblock.com/knowledge-base/articles/jetengine-dynamic-terms-widget-overview/
    https://powerpackelements.com/elementor-widgets/categories/

    If willing to dive into PHP, the relevant function would be get_terms().

    1.) I don’t understand what you mean here

    When associated with the checkboxes

    2.) If I used this

    https://crocoblock.com/knowledge-base/articles/jetengine-dynamic-terms-widget-overview/

    then I won’t need Pods.

    3.)

    If willing to dive into PHP, the relevant function would be get_terms().

    This part is way beyond my abilities (LOL).

    ==================================================
    SUGGESTION
    You see, Elementor is willing to accept Pods, by even adding something of Pods into Elementor by default. They added Pods Field and Pods Date Field by default into Elementor.

    Perhaps if the Pods team reaches out to the Elementor Team, there could be much more deeper Pods integration with Elementor, and this problem I’m facing could then be solved. Don’t you think so?

    For “When associated with the checkboxes”, I mean the checkboxes you screenshotted here: https://prnt.sc/19ncxir — the checkboxes invoke default WordPress custom taxonomy functionality.

    Perhaps if the Pods team reaches out to the Elementor Team, there could be much more deeper Pods integration with Elementor, and this problem I’m facing could then be solved. Don’t you think so?

    Perhaps it’s your responsibility to reach out to Elementor if that’s the product you want to use 🙂 . The problem is related to Elementor’s presentation of any custom taxonomy; it’s not Pods-specific. (It’s not relevant that Pods has been used to register the taxonomy.)

    This part is way beyond my abilities (LOL).

    Don’t worry; it’s a practice. 🙂

    As far as I can see, this displays taxonomies. It doesn’t register them. Pods registers them.

    1.)

    the checkboxes invoke default WordPress custom taxonomy functionality.

    Yes they do.And that’s why I’m able to pull in everything that has to do with Posts into my design using Elementor.

    But there’s nothing there,invoking Recipes (my Custom Post Type) Taxonomy to let me pull them into my Elementor Design.

    However, when I shifted these Custom Taxonomies from Recipes (my Custom Post Type) and associated them to Posts, I was able to pull them into my Elementor Design through Post Terms functionality in Elementor.

    Do you see what’s happening here?

    2.) So when I said it’s the Pods Team that needs to reach out to Elementor, I understood what I was asking you to do. It’s your job to work on the full API integration for Pods and Elementor.

    3.) Perhaps, this is where to look– https://crocoblock.com/plugins/jetengine/

    Right now, I’ve returned to running my Recipes as normal WordPress Posts since there’s no dedicated support for pulling in Taxonomies of Recipes (my Custom Post Type).

    But I’ve used Pods to add new Taxonomies to the default WordPress [Posts] Post Type.

    I wish we could find a way to pull in Pods Custom Post Type Taxonomies with Elementor into an Elementor Design.

    Still in waiting for a lasting solution.

    There’s nothing Pods-specific about the taxonomies. Try Elementor support or any of the linked widgets or functions. Good luck.
