Support » Plugin: Taxonomy filter » Over-engineered and poorly explained.

    I had high hopes. I simply wanted to add drop-down menus at the top of my custom post type bulk edit pages that allowed filtering by custom taxonomy. This seems to offer exactly that. Got “movies” as your post type? Add a selector to filter by the “genre” taxonomy, and another to filter by the “decade” taxonomy, and another by “production studio.”

    I installed it, and followed directions, until it told me to go to individual user pages and select taxonomy terms that I want to display … wait, what? What is this doing? Why is it user-dependent? Why would I have to choose a finite number of terms?

    Ultimately I was unable to get this to do anything. It appears that I do not actually understand the plugin, and I will place that on it being poorly presented. It looks like the publisher might be speaking English as a second language, which also makes the purpose of this plugin a little difficult to discern. Some screen shots and examples would go a long way.

    Hello! In my screenshots and description I don’t speak about drop-down menus.. the plugin only allow to filter taxonomy terms working on the default UI provided by WordPress.
    Probably your desired behavior is not provided by the plugin but this is not designed for YOUR needs, this could be an extension for the plugin!
    I don’t understand how you can rate as “bad” a feature that does not exists!
