This members-only tutorial provides the steps to register a custom shortcode using which unlinked terms of any taxonomy (like the standard categories or any custom taxonomy) can be displayed in WordPress.


[post_terms_unlinked before="Project Type(s): " taxonomy="project_type"]

will output comma-separated terms of project_type custom taxonomy where each term is NOT linked (to the corresponding term archive) with the string, "Project Type(s):" at the front.

This is similar to the earlier How to display taxonomy terms in Oxygen tutorial except the terms are unlinked here.

if taxonomy attribute and value are not provided in the shortcode, the default category will be used.

The other available attributes are:

sep: separator. Default: ", "

after: The string to appear at the end. Default: none/blank.

Step 1

Install and activate Code Snippets plugin.

Go to Snippets > Add New.
