Taxonomy Core Class

Namespace: AcfEngine\Core\Taxonomy

Class Type: abstract

Taxonomy Core Class is an abstract base class for the registration of WordPress Taxonomies, also known as “custom taxonomies”. These are objects that are either hierarchal as in categories, or single level as in tags. The common use of taxonomies in ACF Engine is to associate the taxonomy to a newly created custom post type.

As with all ACF Engine core objects a JSON data file is used to store the settings and provide runtime loading without database fetch of the original settings. This JSON data file is updated on each update of the taxonomy editor.

Taxonomy core class is provided for all forms of taxonomy registration in the ACFG system including code-based taxonomy registration.
