WP Multiple Taxonomy Images


The WP Multiple Taxonomy Images Plugin allows you to add multiple images to a term.
It supports category, tags and custom taxonomies. Terms can have a different number
of images.

  • Works with custom categories, tags, and custom taxonomies.
  • Multiple images per term.
  • Number of images can be changed individually for each term.
  • Thumbnails overview in the term list.
  • Images can be changed when editing terms.
  • A simple settings page allows you to exclude certain taxonomies.


  1. Use <?php if (function_exists('get_tax_image_urls')) $img_urls = get_tax_image_urls($term_id ,'full'); ?> to get an array of all image URLs.
  2. Use <?php if (function_exists('get_tax_images')) $img_html = get_tax_images($term_id ,'full'); ?> to get all images as HTML img-tags.
  3. Use <?php if (function_exists('get_tax_image_metadata')) $img_html = get_tax_image_metadata($term_id); ?> to get an array of every image metadata.
    Each array entry has an object, which corresponds to the return value of wp_get_attachment_metadata() for each single image.

If you do not know the $term_id of the current term in your category/taxonomy template, then you
can query it with the following command:
$tax_obj = get_queried_object();
$term_id = $tax_obj->term_id;


  • Images can be added via the media box when creating a new tag/category (custom term).
  • You can add or remove as many images you want per term.
  • All images are shown as thumbnails.
  • When editing the terms, one can still change images or the number of images.
  • A simple settings page allows you to exclude taxonomies.
