    When I select Category from Taxanomy, it only shows six categories. It does not show all the categories I have in my Posts categories. Is there a fix for this issue? I disabled all Plugins and still have the issue.


    Hi there,

    Do all of those categories have published posts? Only categories with published posts will display.

    Let me know 🙂


    As I just discovered, they don’t display if the posts are Private.

    Tom, I think a fix is needed. I installed yesterday and the first thing I tried to do was create a list with a specific category term. The posts are published but are also private. The term isn’t available in the list unless I turn off the private setting on at least one post with the category. It’s a new site and I’ll be adding new categories regularly. In most cases, I need to be able to build the WPSP list before I make the posts Public. I just checked and it’s doing the same thing with tags. In fact, the Terms selector doesn’t even appear unless the terms are on posts that aren’t marked Private.

    Not all of the lists I’ll be creating will be public-facing. I use taxonomies internally to manage the workflow of posts in development (all Published as Private). I was counting on this tool to help filter and manage them. It seems like it should just show all of the terms I’ve added to the database.

    Thanks for doing what you do.


    Hmm, I’ll look into this. I think it’s default WP functionality to exclude unpublished/private posts from those lists, but I’ll see if I can overwrite that.


    Yeah. I think you’re right about that. Last night I tried to do the same thing with Elementor and had the same results. Don’t go to too much trouble. I can change my workflow a little. I still prefer your plugin because it let’s me put the title above the image. That’s a big deal.


    Yea, I’m not sure if it’s something that can be avoided. I’ll keep my eye out 🙂


    I’m also finding a need to filter the args that allow querying tax terms according to post status. It is default WP functionality which I override with this (which btw no longer works with the block editor)

    add_filter( 'quick_edit_dropdown_pages_args', 'typewheel_allow_private_status' );
    add_filter( 'page_attributes_dropdown_pages_args', 'typewheel_allow_private_status' );
    function typewheel_allow_private_status( $dropdown_args ) {
    	$dropdown_args['post_status'] = 'publish,private,draft';
    	return $dropdown_args;

    I’ll probably create a blank public page and assign each tax term just to get them selectable. So, I’m also good to go, but thought I’d contribute my approach.
