Creating Custom Taxonomies and Fields

  • Adam Onishi


The last chapter looked at one of the main game-changing features of WordPress as a fully fledged content management system (CMS). Another couple of aspects that have contributed just as much are allowing users to customize taxonomies and add custom fields to their content. This gave users the ability to control the organizational structure of their content and add extra information any way they like. This chapter looks at how to get the most from custom taxonomies and custom fields, how to add them to post types, even specific posts, and then at the myriad of ways you can display your content based on this data. First, you’ll take a look at WordPress taxonomies; later in the chapter, you’ll delve into custom fields. Finally, the two are combined to give users the power to find specific content on their sites.
