MB Custom Taxonomy


MB Custom Taxonomy helps you to create and manage custom taxonomies easily in WordPress by providing an easy-to-use interface in the admin area.

The plugin allows you to handle all taxonomy’s arguments such as menu labels, admin bar label, exclude from search, disable archive page, etc. just in minutes. You don’t need to write custom PHP code to register custom taxonomies anymore (using function register_taxonomy()).

Using MB Custom Taxonomy, you will be able to craft the WordPress admin and turn it into a professional Content Management Systems.

Consider using MB Custom Post Type to create and manage custom post types with similar interface.


  • Supports all arguments for creating custom taxonomies (like register_taxonomy())
  • Supports live editing mode, which auto fill in all necessary labels for you!
  • Clean code
  • Registered custom taxonomies can be exported/imported using default WordPress functionality (no more plugins!)

I used it to create a taxonomy tag for the Portfolio custom post type, and worked perfectly. I had been trying to write te code manually but WordPress Codex examples are not updated and uses syntax from WP v 3.1 so my code was not working. I finally found this plugin and I was done in 5 minutes. I can't believe I never heard of this plugin before. Another good thing about Meta Box is that it will provide you with the raw code in case you want to use the code on your own php file. So you don't even need to keep the plugin installed to have the code working. That's so generous!

No idea why they have low ratings and downloads, they are both perfect and nicer than CPT UI or CMB2 IMHO because they work with CPTs themselves so Automattic’s Syndication plugin for replicating to multiple installs, and the standard WP Import/Export all works perfectly for copying to multiple installs or backing up etc. I've tried all the others and really thought they were the ones but then trying this converted me. Pair with ACF and MB Custom Posts and you have a perfect framework for building any data structure.
