This plugin is no longer maintained. The functionality is provided by core Advanced Custom Fields.

Advanced Custom Fields - Taxonomy Field add-on

Adds a Taxonomy Field to Advanced Custom Fields. Select one or more taxonomy terms and assign them to the post.


This is an add-on for the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin and will not provide any functionality to WordPress unless Advanced Custom Fields is installed and activated.

The taxonomy field provides a select, multi-select or checkboxes of taxonomy terms (categories, tags, custom taxonomies...) and the ability to map the selected terms to the post. The post type must support the taxonomy for the mapping to work. The taxonomy field currently does not provide the ability to add new terms to a taxonomy. The return type of the get_value() api can be changed in the field settings.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've activated the plugin, but nothing happens!

Make sure you have Advanced Custom Fields installed and activated. This is not a standalone plugin for WordPress, it only adds additional functionality to Advanced Custom Fields.


  • Add ability to add new terms to a taxonomy
  • Add more term selection methods (token input).
