I want to create another input field like the categories. Whenever user posts a new question I want to have another drop down of locations associated with that particular question, like categories drop down in the the 'Submit Question' form. And how I can add a UI for managing it in the admin section like the one there exists for categories in Questions?

  • Do you mean a plugin like this one: Taxonomy Location? – fuxia Jan 2 '13 at 8:38
  • I just want that when user post question, he must insert location that will be selected from drop down. and it will be managed from UI, exactly like Categories? – Sikander Jan 2 '13 at 8:40
  • That plugin does not force a selection, but everything else is like categories. – fuxia Jan 2 '13 at 8:43
  • thanks.. I've downloaded it, can you give me a link of how can I use it in my blog? It the read me file there is written, it will work when it will be activated. – Sikander Jan 2 '13 at 8:49
  • echo get_the_terms( get_the_ID(), 'location' ) ); will list the locations for a post in your theme. – fuxia Jan 2 '13 at 8:55

If you want to add extra fields to a post in the admin area, use the Advanced Custom Fields plugin. It is pretty good and has a lot of options.
