Taxonomy Filter Block Type

This block type might just be the best singular block type in the entire ACF Engine Core Blocks. Unlike the Meta Filter Block Type which requires some manual configuration of the options, this block uses your taxonomy terms as it’s data source. It automatically turns your taxonomy terms into filterable options and runs a taxonomy filtered query to refresh you loop data.

Below is the minimal example where we’ve dropped in the block and have done absolutely no configuration at all. By default the filter pulls from the default WordPress “category” taxonomy.

Registering custom taxonomies with ACF Engine takes as little as 20-seconds. Dropping in a taxonomy filter takes as little as 3-seconds. If your time is worth $100 per hour, the labor involved in creating a Taxonomy Filter is just 83-cents. That includes 7-seconds of you sipping your coffee and enjoying the new filter as it renders.
