Admin Taxonomy Filter


Admin Taxonomy Filter helps you to filter posts or custom post types in the admin area (the post list table) by custom taxonomies. It’s similar to filter posts by categories, which is supported by default.

The plugin supports filter by multiple taxonomies and has settings to let you choose which taxonomies are filterable.

The plugin is open source and hosted on Github. If you have any problem or feedback, please open an issue.

Please don't stop updating this plugin. Thanks, make it a paid one if you have to, but this plugin is filling a real lack of functionality in the WordPress admin.

I want to love this plugin, but it appears to broken in WP 5.4 - bummer UPDATE: Just played around a little - it appears to break things when "All Categories" or "All Tags" is selected - seems to work when some filter is set. Haven't run through every use case but seems related to that?

The plugin is working great. Four stars, because no language file is provided and it must be created manually.

Great plugin. I did not used it as a plugin but I included the original code in my theme with 1 improvements in class-atf-settings.php line 104 replace printf by if ($taxonomy->label) printf( This will remove empty label taxonomies (due to polylang translations) Many thanks to Anh Tran
