Description

This plugin extends the default taxonomy functionality and extends it to users, while automating all the boilerplate code.

Once activated, you can register user taxonomies using the following code:

register_taxonomy('profession', 'user', array(
    'public'        =>true,
    'single_value' => false,
    'show_admin_column' => true,
    'labels'        =>array(
        'name'                      =>'Professions',
        'singular_name'             =>'Profession',
        'menu_name'                 =>'Professions',
        'search_items'              =>'Search Professions',
        'popular_items'             =>'Popular Professions',
        'all_items'                 =>'All Professions',
        'edit_item'                 =>'Edit Profession',
        'update_item'               =>'Update Profession',
        'add_new_item'              =>'Add New Profession',
        'new_item_name'             =>'New Profession Name',
        'separate_items_with_commas'=>'Separate professions with commas',
        'add_or_remove_items'       =>'Add or remove professions',
        'choose_from_most_used'     =>'Choose from the most popular professions',
    ),
    'rewrite'       =>array(
        'with_front'                =>true,
        'slug'                      =>'author/profession',
    ),
    'capabilities'  => array(
        'manage_terms'              =>'edit_users',
        'edit_terms'                =>'edit_users',
        'delete_terms'              =>'edit_users',
        'assign_terms'              =>'read',
    ),
));

This is heavily inspired by previous work by Justin Tadlock and also forks Damian Gostomskis plugin in the repository to add additional functionality, including:

  • Fixes a bug with display of existing user taxonomies in the user-edit screen
  • Fixes a bug with taxonomy count in the old plugin where deleting users did not update the count
  • Add support for ‘single_value’ attribute when registering a user taxonomy for taxonomies which should only have one value.
  • Properly supports the capabilities associated with the taxonomy when registered.
  • Supports ‘show_admin_column’ attribute when registering the taxonomy in the same way as post taxonomies.
  • Where ‘show_admin_column’ is true admins can assign user taxonomies using bulk edit functionality.
