When I go to customize the Taxonomy Dropdown Widget (TDDW) for my various terms, the very first option under Basic Settings is a dropdown box for Taxonomy. However, the dropdown menu shows up a null field.
For some reason, the widget isn't recognizing my taxonomies.
My original custom menu did recognize the taxonomies, so it's not like it's a problem endemic to my site.
I have some questions:
1. Is it expected that some modifications are necessary with the Editor, depending on the specific nature of the taxonomies from site to site?
2. And if #1 is "yes," then I am having difficulty determining where that modification needs to occur. I thought I saw a likely candidate at the very top of the widget code, but the changes I made to the language didn't change anything on my site.
3. Admittedly, I'm a novice at this. I was looking at the resources that Erick Hitter linked to, and from what I could glean from it, I'm wondering if I need to create an arg statement, which will then allow the widget to recognize that I have three different custom taxonomies.
It just kind of looks like all that's needed is to learn the way to get the widget to notice the taxonomies. I was hoping I'd figure it out on my own, but I've spent days on this, and now I'm just spinning my wheels.
Thanks in advance for any help.
