Support » Plugin: Radio Buttons for Taxonomies » Radio Button Base on post type

  • Resolved creativemanner


    Hey there is there a way to select which taxonomy under what post type get effected?
    I have a taxonomy shared with 3 post types. On one; I need them as radio buttons but other post type; I need that to be regular checkbox. Any way to do make this work?

    Easily? No, there’s nothing built in for that.

    But the options it’s enabled for could potentially be filtered since that is pulled via get_options()… so the appropriate filter would be option_radio_button_for_taxonomies_options

    I store the option as an array so the taxonomies key would be where the enabled taxonomies are.

    This is a total guess… may have errors, may not work at all… but might be a starting point once you adjust some_tax and some_type to your situation. Good luck, I’ll be curious to know how it turns out though I can’t really dig too much deeper.

    function kia_filter_radio_taxonomies( $options ) {
    	global $post;
    	if ( $post instanceof WP_Post ) {
    		$limited_taxonomy = 'some_tax';
    		$limited_post_type = 'some_type';
    		$post_type = get_post_type( $post );
    		$taxonomies = is_array( $options ) && isset( $options['taxonomies'] ) ? $options['taxonomies'] : array();
    		if ( $limited_post_type !== $post_type &&  ) {
    			unset( $taxonomies[ $limited_taxonomy] );
    			$options['taxonomies'] = $taxonomies;
    	return $options;
    add_filter( 'option_radio_button_for_taxonomies_options', 'kia_filter_radio_taxonomies' );

    Thanks, I think this is one of those features that is good to have fyi. I actually used this plugin and it works fine:

    I will make a note of it as a feature request, but this plugin doesn’t get a ton of new feature work (gotta pay the bills) and you’re actually the first person to ask about this in the 8 years of the plugin’s existence. 🙂

    Glad you have a working solution.
