WordPress: Taxonomies – Pt 3 (And Done?)

Unless I’m missing something big, today confirmed that WordPress taxonomies don’t have much support in terms of build in functions. So there I was under the hood doin’ what needed to be done. I made friends with WordPress’ get_terms. In this particular customization case that function seemed the most useful since it can span multiple taxonomies in one bite.

From there I went on to flesh out from theme function from last night. That entailed PHP string parsing so that the term description would be the link title. I wanted to be sure the more cryptic terms were defined with a hover and tool tip. I suspect that much of what I hacked up manually today will eventually be part of the WordPress core. But who knows then that will be.

Oh yeah! I also discovered the PHP shuffle function. That’s a handy one as well.
