comment Modify shortcode to work with custom taxonomies and slugs
What are you submitting via shortcode for the post type? It has to be what was used in register_post_type().

comment Output single post custom taxonomy child terms
I think what you're looking for is get_the_terms(): codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_the_terms

comment Split on self closing shortcode and retrieve args,
I find with non-tech users even shortcodes can be too confusing. You might want to consider giving them custom fields to enter content (the plugin Advanced Custom Fields wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-custom-fields makes this super easy) and then in your CPT template put the fields in different tabs. For tab implementation, maybe look at the code in wordpress.org/plugins/tabby-responsive-tabs

comment Display child page on parent
Have you tried removing 'parent' => $post->ID from the get_pages parameters? and/or removing 'child_of' => $post->ID (leaving in the parent parameter)?

comment If page is a taxonomy do X, if is a term, do Y
Agree with Milo. On taxonomy-slug.php you're showing an archive of the posts associated with one term in that taxonomy (that's what you're identifying in get_query_var('term')). So I guess I'm not understanding what you need. What "taxonomy" specific info do you need to display, vs "term" specific info?

comment If page is a taxonomy do X, if is a term, do Y
Where are you putting this code? Could you use the template hierarchy rather than an if/else statement? codex.wordpress.org/…

comment More efficient query to display posts in same sub-category?
@ialocin My client isn't sure if they want this in the sidebar or after the post content, thus the shortcode. Out of curiosity, why would a widget be beneficial? would that render faster than a shortcode?

comment More efficient query to display posts in same sub-category?
OK wow! the code was in a "plugin", basically my shortcodes copied into a plugin.php file so they wouldn't be in functions.php. When I saw your question, I tried moving the code into functions.php & it seemed to speed up enormously (Debug Queries still gave same result, but sidebar seems to load instantly now). Moved it back to the plugin, and same - still faster experience. I may have been fooled by Chrome caching an earlier version that was throwing PHP notices?? (If you mean where do I call the shortcode, it's in Black Studio's TinyMCE widget in the sidebar of a single post page.)

comment Change sub-menu position of custom taxonomy
Thanks! I ended up using a plugin but I appreciate the answer. Good to know I wasn't going crazy looking for a clean way to handle it. :)
