There’s not much documentation for the WordPress Plugin called Ultimate Taxonomy Manager, but it’s the only one I found that claimed to easily let you add custom fields/options to your custom taxonomies.
So, If you are using Ultimate Taxonomy Manager to display custom fields for terms under a custom taxonomy, and you were wondering how to show the fields on the taxonomy archive pages, this is how I did it:
<?php //standard wordpress call $taxonomy = '~~~~insertcustomtaxonomynamehere~~~~'; $customfield = '~~~~nameofcustomfield~~~~'; $cat_name = get_query_var( $taxonomy ); $term = get_term_by('name', $cat_name, $taxonomy); //ultimate taxonomy manager plugin specific call: $var = xydac_cloud($taxonomy,'',$customfield); echo 'MY CUSTOM FIELD:' . $var[$cat_name][$customfield]; ?>
See my Demo images below:
My taxonomy name was: test
my custom field was: summary
The page shows a custom summary field for whatever term you are viewing. so for demo, we are viewing the page for category/term called “child”, where i added custom data for “child”‘s summary field.
If you are looking to echo regular fields in your archive pages for custom taxonomy, like for instance, the taxonomy description:
<?php $taxonomy = 'test'; $customfield = 'summary'; $cat_name = get_query_var( $taxonomy ); $term = get_term_by('name', $cat_name, $taxonomy); echo 'The term description is: '. $term->description . "<br/>\n"; ?>
