A while back I wrote a short series of articles on programatically manipulating taxonomies in WordPress. If you didn’t see the series it included:

But what do you do if you are not a coder? Well to make life easier I have created a plugin which will give users of WordPress greater control over the taxonomies that are available to them. I have called this plugin the Taxonomy Toolkit and it has the following features:

  1. The adding and removal of terms from posts en-mass.
  2. Adding and removing your own custom taxonomies for finer control over how your data(posts) is displayed on your website.
  3. Adding and removing terms from built in taxonomies, taxonomies added by other plugins and custom taxonomies added using the toolkit.

The plugin follows the WordPress coding standards to ensure that the plugin is built in a robust and maintainable way.

Here are a couple of screenshots.





So where can I get this plugin? Well it should be available soon on CodeCanyon, the Envato website. I will post an update here as soon as it is.
