Description

Was it discusses ever, to integrate thumbnail support for categories too?

This plugin adds the feature to WP to add thumbnails (feature images) to categories and use functions:

has_category_thumbnail();
get_the_category_thumbnail();
....

However, it may be nice to have these features built-in.

  • Keywords needs-patch 2nd-opinion dev-feedback added

The category screen would have to be changed (added cat meta for thumbnail), plus a way to add it to custom taxonomies would have to be implemented as well.

You can add a patch if you want to, but I don't think this will be implemented, since term meta was added back in 4.4, and it wasn't added then...

  • Component changed from General to Taxonomy

I think what @dingo_bastard means is term meta data was implemented, but term images were not part of the meta that was included, if I'm interpreting that correctly. I personally think that this isn't a highly sought after feature and that if it is needed by someone, a plugin is available to those that want it.

Precisely that :D Sorry I wasn't clear enough...
