Support » Plugin: Custom Post Type UI » Unable to add custom taxonomies

  • Resolved dalecameronlowry

    (@dalecameronlowry)


    Hello. I’ve installed the plugin and created a few custom taxonomies. For example, I created the taxonomy “Genre” and wanted to use these as the tags within it: contemporary, crime mystery, fairy tale, fantasy, historical, etc.

    However, these tags disappear when I save my post.

    Am I missing an obvious step here?

    I added the requested code to my functions.php

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Can you clarify what you mean by disappear? They don’t show in the metabox on the right side? They aren’t listed as available terms when you visit the tax term management area? Just an issue with the display on the frontend, but they are shown as saved on the backend?

    Something different?

    Thanks. I meant they disappeared int the metabox.

    But a few hours later, they stopped disappearing, so perhaps it was a caching issue.

    However, it would be great to know how to display them on the front end. I couldn’t find that in documentation. Or do I need to work with my theme developer for that?

    Odd, but good to know that that part resolved itself.

    For frontend display in the theme files, I’d recommend checking out https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/get_the_terms/ and working with your theme developer. CPTUI doesn’t affect theme output at all, so that part is up to the site owner.
