I am creating a custom taxonomy for the first time. I am trying to add a
Location taxonomy. What I am actually trying to do is use existing categories to make them into locations.
I went into the database table
wp_term_taxonomy and manually changed the
taxonomy column of the ones I wanted from
This seemed to work pretty well, posts are assigned to the desired locations and everything seems to be fine, until I go to the Locations page in the admin interface and find myself with an empty list, even though it detects the existing locations and lists them:
If I manually add a new Location through the interface it appears on the list correctly.
What could be causing this?
