I am stuck on trying to create a template page that displays a list of the names in a specific custom taxonomy of a custom post type I created.

The custom taxonomy is locations and clicking on a location like New York, should take you to a list of all the post types that are connected to that location.

I have looked at get_the_terms_list but I have not been able to produce the list. Don't really know what steps and pages I have to create to do all this so any help would be appreciated.

  • code samples would be appreciated? Oct 19, 2013 at 8:22

I am assiming you already register taxonomy which show you correct links (and generate correct rewrite rules)... but lets make a checklist.

1) Register Taxonomy and assign it to different post types

done by you...

2) Modify a rewrite rules

add_filter('locations_rewrite_rules', 'se_119400_locations_rewrite_rules');
function se_119400_locations_rewrite_rules(){
    $rules = array();
    $rules['location(/?(([^/]+?)(/page/?([0-9]{1,})/?)?)?)$']     = 'index.php?locations=$matches[3]&paged=$matches[5]&post_type=any';
    return $rules;

3) Taxonomy template?

Create a taxonomy template taxonomy-locations.php - this will show you a list of posts..

4) Actuall locations list/cloud?


 wp_tag_cloud(array('taxonomy' => 'locations'));
  • The code can be affected by my framework functionality (i did a tests on dev enviropment with taxonomy location - which is almost same), but in general it working example. Oct 19, 2013 at 8:21
  • Which page would the code for the rewrite rules go?

  • And what page would the code for the list/cloud go?

  • rewrite rules to functions.php and the wp_tag_cloud to place where you want to show the locations tags cloud Oct 20, 2013 at 6:51
  • Awesome! This worked for me.
