Shreve: Vendig: truly consider WHY you want to do that and WHY you feel it must be a taxonomy and not just another post type
Leadley: I know I do it regularly, adding a wysiwyg editor, some ACF fields, but the interface stays the same, theres no post status, no author etc
Closs: Hussey, thank you for pointing me to wp_query
Coral: Vendig: this was actually a topic of conversation in the WP Core room today
Closs: I switched all my queries to that
Capulong: Vendig: and the consensus is that one should not be trying to use taxonomies like posts and people should always consider why they’re trying to do that
Manvelyan: I did it for a taxonomy called “location”, where staff a CPT were ***igned to an office. Offices have an address, a map link, and an image.
Cattano: Hussey: That ****s for me then :
Clineman: Vendig: its just one of those things you have to think deeply about and if what you’re putting there is still some form of categorization or not
Turnell: Because there are limitations
Vanhise: And you can code yourself into a corner
Aksoy: I wondering how I got away with never having to use posts or taxonomies in wordpress :-/
Manvelyan: Hussey takes the bait
Baratta: For a plugin admin page made with add_options_page, where do i put my code to process the form submission?
Onstead: Manvelyan: oh no, it’s perfectly rational, right?
Terrey: Hussey: Was there any positivity towards a change in UI tho?
Onstead: Garuti: you might way to actually pay attention this time.
Quartucci: Hussey: The current UI is really built for cats and tags, very bloggy thinking. WP is much more now.
Lhuillier: Vendig: not quite sure what you’re saying here.
Fellars: Like when you save a term, you get thrown back to the cats page. On a post you would stay on the term.
Ristig: Manvelyan: seriously just use usermeta and options :-/
Blanquart: Vendig: i still have no idea what you’re really saying here
Navar: Yet why cant a category page be as rich in content as a regular page? That content you want to tweak regularly, so getting thrown back at each save is annoying.
Montrose: Manvelyan: I’ve been using.
Rentfrow: Vendig: because categories aren’t posts. they should never be used as posts. otherwise you should literally just make a new CPT
Manvelyan: I’ve been using, too. :-
Fridley: Vendig: there is ZERO reason to not make a CPT when you need a rich content editing experience as with posts
Manvelyan: Oops… did I say that in public?
Hust: Vendig: taxonomies are supposed to be meant 100% for categorization of data only. treating taxonomies like posts themselves is silly and a really bad idea as a whole
Seiler: Lenswipee: good for you
Ferri: Hussey: http://i.imgur.com/27UWqqf.gif
Reeds: Thats what I meant by on save you get thrown back.
Pardi: If you guys are talking about my situtation it is for categorization. I have a post type “Tutorial” and theres two types of tutorials now Emblem tutorials and Camo Tutorials. The only thing different about camo tutorials is that it has a couple extra image fields.
Peixoto: Vendig: i understand the redirection you are talking about the rest of the question makes no sense
Urmos: CODPlayerCards: no we arent
Manvelyan: We’re in one of those “I want something so core should be changed” situations.
Delmendo: Manvelyan: its not even that. the actual convo doesnt even make sense. and its interesting because the core dev chat was specifically on this topic
Manvelyan: On the use of cats or the UI issue?
Valentin: Lets say you sell tires. And you have a CPT of ‘tire’. You have 100 different tires you sell. They are of 10 different brands, and 10 different types – like offroad, racing etc. Those brands and types should be taxonomies right?
