Support » Theme: Kadence » No support for taxonomies with custom post type?

  • Resolved marashmallow

    (@marashmallow)


    I notice that when I go to Customizer > Custom Post Types > [CPT name] Pages Layout, there is no possibility to show a custom taxonomy I have attached to the CPT.

    Is this unsupported?

    Hi, I’m not sure I understand what you mean? are You wanting to show your custom post type like a blog post and show a custom taxonomy in the meta area?

    Ben Hi,

    > Are you wanting to show your custom post type like a blog post and show a custom taxonomy in the meta area?

    Yes. Given that custom post types are no different in principle to ‘post’ (blog) post types, I assumed that the controls to manage them within Kadence would be the same.

    I mean, the controls are already there, under Customizer > Custom Post Types > [My CPT] Archive > Post Item Layout. Meta seems to work for me. But Categories doesn’t show anything regardless of how I set it – visible or invisible. I have both a custom taxonomy and the default ‘category’ taxonomy attached to my CPT, but neither is being shown.

    Hi,
    Categories are only designed in the theme to work with posts. I’ll have to think about adding options to allow you to select which custom taxonomy you would want to show as a replacement for custom post types where you want a similar output to posts. Currently, however, there isn’t a built-in way to do that.

    OK, thanks.

    @marashmallow How did you set up your CPT? Just by adding the code, or using a plugin?

    I’ve got custom taxonomies attached to my CPT on my site – but it’s all set up through CPT UI plugin, which works without issue on Elementor’s Hello theme (and I was under the impression that the plugin would resolve any “theme” issues).

    @britner Does the use of the CPT UI plugin make a difference in this case? (Or using a child theme, like I typically use anyways?) Or would this setup allow for the CPT to show within WP, just not within the customiser (as that’s theme-specific)?

    I’m trying to leave Elementor and need a new theme. Everything so far points to Kadence & Kadence blocks as the best option to replace them. But if I cannot utilise the taxonomies with my established CPT, I’ll be looking elsewhere.

    Since my unanswered comment & questions last week, I have since added CPT and custom taxonomy via CPT UI Plugin – and am having the same issue as @marashmallow in that they are not showing up in customiser.

    I will add that even adding custom taxonomies to the WP Core to Pages & Posts do not show under the Page Layout Customiser options. Only Categories are shown… but then categories don’t show under CPT…

    In all of the other themes I have worked with on multiple websites, this has never been an issue. Given that Kadence Theme is setting itself up to be a replacement for page builders, the lack of support for such a core WP element is quite disappointing.

    Hi @dilbert16588,
    So to hear you’ve been disappointed. This is a resolved thread so it is very easy to overlook comments added after. Can you please start a new thread? We would be more than happy to assist you!

    Kindly,
    Hannah

    Hi, @hannahritner

    Yes, it is marked as “resolved” – but the initial poster’s problem was never actually resolved. You only marked it resolved because @britner said it wasn’t possible (despite being a core WP function).

    Ergo why my continuing of this issue is appropriate for this thread – given that the issues is still the same. Additionally, with how CPT are registered and added to WP (both manually and via the plugin), the CPT is using the core ‘post’ layout and templates and the custom taxonomy has been added to the CPT, AND pages & posts. It all shows up appropriately in the editor – but not in the customiser.
