Frontend Form with Taxonomy field that can create terms

  • Hi,

    I’m looking for a way to include a taxonomy field into a frontend-facing form where users have the possibility (among other fields) to not only select matching taxonomy terms but create new ones at the same time, just like the wp-admin taxonomy field provides. Can anyone point me into the direction of a solution?


  • This requires giving permission to add terms for the taxonomy anyone that visits your site or to a specific user type that might not have this ability.

    The best, most secure way of doing this on the front end is to have another text field for people that do not already have permission to create a term and then create an acf/save_post action that does the term creation and addition to the post.

  • Thank you. I’ll have a look into this possibility.

  • Any luck? I am about to attempt this as well.
