i got a custom post type "datei" that is in relation with a post type "mitglied".

"datei" has a custom taxonomy

when i add a "datei" directly to a "mitglied", i cannot choose the taxonomy.

is there a way to
1) choose the taxonomy when adding a new child record
2) show the taxonomy in the child posts lists (this is just as important as 1))

of course, solution via PHP is fine.

thanks!!

Hello,

Q1) choose the taxonomy when adding a new child record
There isn't such kind of built-in feature within Types plugin, you will need to edit the child "datei" post, and setup it's terms of taxonomy,

Q2) show the taxonomy in the child posts lists
Same as above: there isn't such kind of built-in feature within Types plugin.
You can click the "gear" button in your video, you should be able to see there isn't taxonomy options in it.

According to our support policy, we don't provide custom codes support, but you can add a feature request here:
https://toolset.com/home/contact-us/suggest-a-new-feature-for-toolset/

Our developers will evaluate it.

Thanks Luo
i figured that to be the case. It's not such a big deal, i can advice the client to add first the "datei" and then connect the "mitglied" (other way arround). It would just be cool to have more options in the backend in order to avoid having to create a frontend for minor missing things in backend. i will do some suggestions later on.

But maybe you can answer me this: 🙂
is there a hook for the displayed child post-type fields/table?

something like the manage_xxxxx_posts_columns that i can use to manipulate the output of the connected type table?

Thanks!

Here is the feedback from our developers:
There are no filter hooks where users can readily customize what appears as columns in the post relationships metabox, and we have some plan to add taxonomy fields into the relationships metabox.

But I am not sure when will it be implemented, currently, you can add a feature request as I mentioned above:
