Taxonomies Sortable allow to sort non-hierarchical taxonomy terms associated to objects by drag&drop them on the administration interface.


Once the plugin is installed you can make a taxonomy sortable in the following ways:

  • Programmatically by adding 'sortable' => true argument in register_taxonomy().
  • Programmatically by using taxonomies_sortable filter below.
  • Using the Settings->Taxonomies Sortable administration screen by selecting non-hierarchical taxonomies you want to make sortable.

Note that making a taxonomy sortable, implicitly means also setting sort => true for that taxonomy.



Filter allowing to programmatically set sortable taxonomies.

apply_filters( 'taxonomies_sortable', array $taxonomies )


Filter allowing to display or not the plugin settings page in the administration.

apply_filters( 'taxonomies_sortable_admin_settings', boolean $display )
