[resolved] [Plugin: Types - Custom Fields and Custom Post Types Management] Show Custom Taxonomy column in Cust (6 posts)

    When you're in the normal posts list of the Admin, there's both a Categories and Tags column, which lists the posts' Categories and Tags. You can quickly view all posts in a single Cat/Tag by clicking it under the appropriate column.

    However, on my Custom Post Type I created using this excellent plugin, in the equivalent list view, it doesn't show the Custom Taxonomies I have linked to it. That means there's no way to sort by the Custom Taxonomies via the admin (at least that I can see). It would sure make managing my custom posts a lot easier if it worked the same as normal posts. Is it possible to have Custom Taxonomies listed there in the same way? If so, how?

    Right. The child posts view doesn't currently list taxonomy. We're aware of it and are going to add this in the near future.

    For now, the only 'wordaround' is to click on 'edit' for the child posts and set these taxonomy values in the single-post editor. I know that this is not what you're looking for, but there's no other solution at the moment. It's on our todo list.

    Oh cool. Glad to know it's in the works. That's good enough for me. Great plugin.

    Looks like the same plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ps-taxonomy-expander/ that solved my other problem: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-types-custom-fields-and-custom-post-types-management-possible-to-do-radio-button-taxonomy-andor-disable-adding-new-ones also has a setting that fixes this problem as well. I'm all for less plugins, so it'll be great when you guys add all it's features to Types, but the two plugins work great together for now.

    Thanks very much for the Types plugin, which is awesome! And thank you Tevya for directing me to the PS Taxonomy Expander plugin, which allows me to show the custom taxonomy columns in my lists in admin - perfect!

    I just started using Types, and I think the plugin is terrific.

    I was unable to find a way to display a Taxonomy in a column in Admin. Has this feature been included in Types yet? (I see from this post that this was the plan).

    If it has not been included yet, then I would certainly recommend adding this capability. Thanks for any information.
