I'd like users to be able to assign a category to a page by selecting from the page dashboard. So when they create a new page they can select the post category they want to be linked and display on that page.

Is this possible?

add this code into functions.php and a taxonomy box will be created for page from where user can make categories for page.

add_action( 'init', 'create_book_tax' );

function create_book_tax() {
            'label' => __( 'Genre' ),
            'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'genre' ),
            'hierarchical' => true,
  • What I meant was to choose an existing category from the posts section on the page that you want to assign the posts category too. Commented Feb 21, 2018 at 17:21
  • for that you just has to change genre term with category. and that's it. Commented Feb 22, 2018 at 5:07
