4 thoughts on “Utility Taxonomies

  1. Great article, and much needed too. I believe this approach was adopted by WooCommerce for their starred products.

    I think it may help developers is they had the possibility to display these boolean taxonomies as a predef radio button to users. Maybe add a parameter when registering a taxonomy?

    These small UI changes can make a big difference in changing mindsets of both developers and users.

    Cheers.

  2. This is a great tip! I see Jetpack is using a private term “featured” (a post tag) for it’s featured posts. And querying posts by taxonomy has great performance.
