    Hello GP Team!

    I’ve created some CPTs for example ‘reports’, ‘consultations’ , ‘briefings’ ,
    I’d like these to show up in the right side bar of the archive pages (which I can do via ‘Elements’ > ‘Layout’

    But, I need the CPT categories to show up first. Can only see native cats from posts.

    I’m not sure how to get them to show up:

    <?php $categories = get_terms( ['taxonomy' => 'reports'] ); ?>
    
    <ul>
        <?php foreach($categories as $key => $category) { ?>
            <li>
                <a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_term_link($category) ); ?>">
                    <?php echo esc_html($category->name); ?>
                </a>
            </li>
        <?php } ?>
    </ul>

    Thanks in advance
    Ema

    Hi there,

    so is you function not working ? Or is just a case you want to add them somewhere else in the sidebar ? eg. as a widget.

    Hi David,

    Yes, I can’t seeem to find the correct function to allow me to show my CPT categories in the native WP categories.
    Like so https://www.dropbox.com/s/pf8ctkwavebhfof/Screenshot%202022-01-12%20at%2016.24.07.png?dl=0
    and yes to show them in the right sidebar widget.

    Hi Ema,

    We can turn it into a shortcode so you can run the snippet through a shortcode block placed on a specific part of the widget area.

    add_shortcode( 'display_cpt_terms', function() {
    
        ob_start();
        // Start your PHP below
    	
    	$categories = get_terms( ['taxonomy' => 'reports'] ); 
    
        echo '<ul>';
        
        foreach($categories as $key => $category) {
            echo '<li><a href="'.esc_url( get_term_link($category) ).'">'.esc_html($category->name).'</a></li>';
        }
        
        echo '</ul>';
      
        // End your PHP above
        return ob_get_clean();
    } );

    With this, you can use the shortcode [display_cpt_terms].

    Feel free to modify the PHP snippet to fit what you need it to do. πŸ˜€
