Taxonomies: Admin Area

This guide will show you how to change the “Admin Area” options for your taxonomies. You can find this by visiting the Taxonomies screen and editing a taxonomy.

These five settings control how your taxonomy appears in the WordPress admin area:

  • Show user interface: Should this be visible to manage these terms?
  • Show in admin menus: Should there be a link to this taxonomy in the WordPress admin menu?
  • Show in frontend menus: Should this taxonomy be available for the “Menus” screen?
  • Show admin menu: Should this taxonomy appear on screens such as “Posts” and “Pages”?
  • Show in “Quick Edit” and “Bulk Edit”: Should this taxonomy be available in editing tools on screens such as “Posts” and “Pages”?
