Works well, specially when we work in FSE, and the query loop block is not displaying custom taxonomies. So i use it as a second menu on an custom post archives template, without the complexity of adding any gutenberg addons From my Pov there is still little improvments before rating 5 stars : > like when there is no image or no description, i’d rather not see that in the source code: <div class="tax-image"> <img src="" width="50"> </div>…… <div class="tax-desc"></div> > i think the css should be simplified, with the flexbox properties and avoiding any float positionning. For the rest, did not test for other functionality than its name supposed : list custom taxonomy

Great way to show call my custom taxonomy as an organized, ordered list. My favorite feature is the little search bar. For a site with a lot of taxonomy it makes my list so much more usable.

I installed this and entered the short code… and it worked! I created my first non-trivial custom post type with a couple of taxonomies, one with many entries. I wanted to create a simple page that listed the taxonomies and provided links for each that would display the archive of posts with the selected taxonomy. I’ve been doing web site maintenance for years, and I _hate_ having to delve into the php just to get something simple done. This was easy!
