Taxonomy field prevents standard taxonomy meta box from adding terms to the post

  • Hi,

    once the taxonomy field is activated and set to add the selected terms to the post, any terms added with the standard taxonomy meta box fail to be added. They are however added to the taxonomy.

    any ideas on how to ensure new terms are also linked with the post?

    cheers,

    Tom

  • Hi @blackpenpress

    The taxonomy field (when saving and loading to the post) will remove all connections on save, and then save only the selected connections.

    You can’t use this in combination with the WP taxonomy box.

  • sorry for the bother Elliot, it seemed like buggy behaviour but I can see why it’s set up like that now. I was trying to use this method as a workaround for the lack of a way to add a term, previous issue here adding a term with ACF I got this working with javascript, code on the linked issue.

    cheers,

    Tom
