I am trying to get list of registred taxonomies of current post,
I mean:

register_taxonomy('color',array('thing'),$args) ;
register_taxonomy('shape',array('thing'),$args) ;
register_taxonomy('material',array('thing'),$args) ;
// etc..

So how can I get the list of taxonomies that registred to 'thing' posttype? Must be something like:

$taxonomies = get_registred_taxonomies_of('thing') ;
print_r($taxonomies) // Show "color,shape,material"...

Any idea? Thank you!

You are looking for get_object_taxonomies ex:

$taxonomies = get_object_taxonomies('thing') ;
print_r($taxonomies) // Show "color,shape,material"..
