Taxonomy Extra Tools makes you able to:

  • activate a main root archive page, with a clean permalink rewrite structure, for your custom and built-in taxonomies (e.g. mysite.com/custom-taxonomy/, mysite.com/category/ ) please note that WordPress does not provide this kind of page template by default, as a specific term is usually required by the query
  • simply add your custom and built-in taxonomies archive to the nav menu
  • choose if you like to display the terms and/or their associated (custom) posts as a flat list or maintain the hierarchy levels between parent and child terms
  • easily style the output term list by adding a filter from your theme's functions.php (the Twenties default theme series is already supported)
  • activate a filter to manipulate the post title and insert (custom) taxonomies terms according to a text replacement string
  • activate the "post extra" one-to-many relationship by selecting the custom post types that can be associated to posts
  • use the "Recent Extras" widget to show the entries from the selected post types belonging to the current post
  • use the "Current Terms" widget to show the terms from the selected taxonomies assigned to the current post
  • use the conditional tag is_tax_root_archive() to check whether the loop belongs to a taxonomy main root archive page
  • get a clean HTML title tag with the taxonomy name in main taxonomy root archives
  • use the %%taxonomy_name%% replacement in conjunction with the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast

Custom Taxonomies and Post Types must be registered/created previously: the Types plugin is strongly recommended.

The Categories Images plugin can be used to add/assign images to categories and custom taxonomies.

Make sure the permalink rewrite structure works as expected by checking through the Rewrite Rules Inspector plugin.
