Niko Taxonomy Filters


I was looking for a plugin that would add the possibility to filter the post list in admin based on available taxonomies for the current post type. Could only find snippets that neede to be modified per post type and taxonomy. This plugin works with native post types aswell as custom. It checks which taxonomies are registered for each post type and display only relevant taxonomies as filters.


  1. Upload the plugin folder files to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Does this work woth custom post types?


Does this work with custom taxonomies?

Great plugin, works as expected out of the box.

Works as it is supposed to. Only improvement I can think of would be a way to disable certain taxonomies, for example for tags.

Just as the author states it seems to be hard to find a plugin that adds filter dropdowns for custom taxonomies in the repo. This one did the job. BTW, the author should add screen shots to the description, may give it more traction. Thanks @trevald!
