I think I may have come across a bug, although can’t be 100% sure. I’ve got a custom AJAX registration form that creates the users fine and adds the taxonomy ID into the user meta table. The problem lies when I come to view/edit the taxonomy via wp-admin, logged in as myself/admin. It appears to be loading the value of my profile and not that of the user. I’m also having issues with it not saving at all.
Has anyone else come across this?
I’m happy to provide any info that might help.
ACF does not support taxonomies for users, as it stands, WP itself while you can add taxonomies to users does not explicitly support it. For more information on what has been discussed here see this topic as well as the WP trac ticket mentioned. http://support.advancedcustomfields.com/forums/topic/user-taxonomies/
Here’s another posts from a while back on the same topic that might explain why it is not included in ACF http://support.advancedcustomfields.com/forums/topic/taxonomies-not-saving-for-users/
