Problem: Changing a term into a checkbox field and add as a filter to view

Solution: you can add the Taxonomy term filter as checkboxes when you add a frontend filter to your view.

Hi I'm importing a messy old database of low-income and homeless accommodation into WordPress.

There are a couple of keywords that I've imported as Terms in Toolset Custom Taxonomies, but it would make more sense to change them into checkbox fields.

eg: "Eligibility Requirements" > "Pets"

Can you think of any efficient way to filter all the posts with the Term "Pets" and check a checkbox field as "Yes"?

Or would it be easier just to make a Taxonomy just for Pets with the terms "Yes" and "No"?
(using Term Management Tools plugin).

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions 🙂

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

As you mentioned that you want to filter the posts - do you want to filter the posts using view? If yes: if you have pets as term already setup, you can add the Taxonomy term filter as checkboxes when you add a frontend filter to your view.

Thanks yes I was thinking to do that and glad to know thats the way that makes sense to you.
Well I'll end up with a lot of taxonomies, but I guess its effectively the same as having a lot of fields.
