Actually is not child taxonomies to auto create them without something triggering something, I'm looking for a solution for when a taxonomy is published some other taxonomies of my choice will be published under it making them child.

Example I have artist like Eminem, Beyonce, Adelle etc... I want the artist to be the parent taxonomy and want things like Videos, Lyrics, and Album to be the child taxonomies.... So when i create a new taxonomy Like......

Beyonce (Parent Taxonomy) ------> Will be created manually

   ---> Videos (Child Taxonomy)  Auto publish under Beyonce immediately the Beyonce is publish so this becomes Beyonce's child

   ---> Lyrics (Child Taxonomy)     Auto publish under Beyonce immediately the Beyonce is publish so this becomes Beyonce's child

   ---> Album (Child Taxonomy)   Auto publish under Beyonce immediately the Beyonce is publish so this becomes Beyonce's child

And it should do the same for any artist i publish, Charles i hope its clear now.... Thanks

Well, yes, but how will you determine what three child taxonomies should be created..? –  Andrew Bartel Aug 9 '13 at 0:10
    
Is there no way we can place the 3 child taxonomies in a code so that when every parent is created those 3 child taxonomies will be child under it. –  Kobbe Aug 9 '13 at 11:22
    
I suppose, but what are you trying to accomplish? Why does this need to be automated? A taxonomy creation is just a call to register_taxonomy(). You could put the three register_taxonomy() functions in an if statement and check for the parent taxonomy with taxonomy_exists() –  Andrew Bartel Aug 9 '13 at 16:23
    
Actually its a music site and i want to list all artist based in my country, Bro u know it's not an easy task creating a whole bunch of artist one by one, Thats why i want some function/snippet that will kinda make things faster, Bro this is what i want accomplish, Create Example Artist "Eminem - parent taxonomy" which i will create manually, But things like "Albums, Tracks, Lyrics, Interviews and others - child taxonomies" Should be automatically publish too whenever a parent is published...Bro thanks for your responses i really appreciate. –  Kobbe Aug 9 '13 at 23:17
    
Perhaps you could edit your question to explain what you are trying to accomplish on your web site and how these taxonomies would fit into it. –  Charles Clarkson Aug 10 '13 at 19:36
