    What kind of columns would you like to be able to add to the Taxonomy List Tables?



    I appreciate the response. Thanks for the plugin,

    What kind of columns would you like to be able to add to the Taxonomy List Tables?

    Its more about having the ability to re-label, rearrange & re-width these columns as well.

    > I think having the ability to reflect the return value of custom fields from relevant taxonomy & term edit screens would be priceless.

    > There are a lot of properties of a custom Taxonomy or Term object that one could need represented in columns. Although WordPress by default only allows a few for example ‘description’, ‘slug’ & ‘id’ I am sure there are hidden ones? no?

    > Example: My term edit admin screen has a custom field entry for an input of a term from another taxonomy. It would be nice if the columns associated with reflecting terms could also reflect the returned selected terms.

    Incase you need a custom fields plugin for reference:
    The Advanced Custom Fields plugin is by far the best in my views.

    Post Edit screen Columns
    On a side note or maybe for enhancement considerations; really been looking for a plugin that allows more columns in the Post Edit screen instead of just 2. These are not also considered columns? :).
    Closest plugin I found but doesn’t seem to be working: Third Column

    I see what you mean. I have added as a feature request for now, and i’ll take another look at it. I have to see if WordPress allows me to alter the columns of taxonomy list table ( admin screen) just like the others ( users, posts, media ).

    I use ACF myself a lot, great plugin and works very well with Admin Columns 🙂

    I looked into how ACF stores it’s meta data from taxonomies I noticed it stores it’s data in the options table. I think because WordPress doesn’t support metadata for taxonomies by default. I think it can be done, but there are some technical challenges I will have to look at first.

    Post Edit columns: The third-column plugin is a total different column then what I mean by columns. I would recommend contacting it’s author for additional setups.

    This would be great if you could get ACF in the Taxonomy Admin

    Ditto what haleeben said 🙂

    Being able to customise the taxonomy list table using the Admin Columns functionality would be fantastic. +1 from me for this feature request.

    Hey Tobias

    Any update on this feature?

    I’d be happy to pay for it as a premium feature, as I’m sure other people would 🙂


    It definitely appears to be possible

    Even seems to list Taxonomy as a supported type (bottom of the page, or screenshot)

    We’ve actually implemented this feature in Admin Columns Pro, which now allows you to customize the admin screens for categories, tags and custom taxonomies! It also features Advanced Custom Fields integration, but only for posts. Taxonomies and other content types are to follow soon!
