How to add image field admin column to a taxonomy in WordPress

Sridhar Katakam

This members-only tutorial provides the steps to show images from an image-type custom field created using Advanced Custom Fields for each term of a taxonomy in a custom admin column on the taxonomy listing screen in WordPress.

Step 1

If you want to set this up for a custom taxonomy vs the standard category or post_tag, create your desired custom taxonomy using CPT UI or otherwise, if you haven't already.

Step 2

Install and activate ACF (free or pro).

Go to Custom Fields > Add New and create a field group containing a field of "Image" type and attach it to your desired taxonomy.

Step 3

Edit your terms and upload/select the corresponding image for each.

Step 4

Install and activate Code Snippets.

Go to Snippets > Add New.
