Is there a quick way to add a list of countries as terms to a custom taxonomy called "Country"?

Is there an existing import file, SQL script ect...

I don't want to be there all day manually adding them.

Any ideas would be great.

Try this. Note that I found this country array online and cannot vouch for it's accuracy. Also, I've set the taxonomy to the "country" taxonomy. Change all instances of that if it does not match your specific taxonomy name. You can add this to your functions.php file in your current theme. Reload WordPress and it should add them. Once they are added, delete this code. I did put a check in there to make sure they aren't added twice.

add_action('init', 'add_countries', 100);

function add_countries()
{
    $country_array = array(
        'AF'=>'AFGHANISTAN',
        'AL'=>'ALBANIA',

  • Where do I put this code?

  • Put it in your functions.php file of your current theme. Run it once then remove it.

  • This doesn't seem to work, checked the name and it is country... placed the code in my functions file and refreshed nada

  • The custom taxonomy is attached to a custom post type called "story", would that effect things?
    – Dan Lee

  • I edited the original post. Try it. I did something foolish. I should run the code on 'init' otherwise your taxonomy is probably not yet defined and it won't add terms to an undefined taxonomy.

You can make your own script to import them using wp_insert_term.

I just want to add that if you see a 404 page after you add this taxonomy for a post type, then you simply put flush_rewrite_rules(); in the register taxonomy section.

For example:

register_taxonomy( 'country', array( 'job' ), $args );  
flush_rewrite_rules();

    Never do that. That is a really expensive functions which will rebuild your permalinks on every page load. This slows your page down dramatically which is really bad for SEO and also hits your db hard. Please check the codex on how to properly use this function Jan 28 '15 at 11:25
