    Hi!

    We have a custom advanced taxonomy field which we want to mark as required. We also want editors to add new terms when creating a post. While there are such settings provided by Meta Box they do not work. After adding a new term within the custom field the post cannot be saved as the newly added term is not persisted in DB and as the result it is not available in select.

    Another related issue is when you want to updated the value for such field. If you click "Add new term" and type in a new term in the open field and then click Update for the post, it saves second term entry to the database: the one in selector and another one in input field.

    Ideally, a new term should be persisted in DB either on Enter or on button click which states it clearly "Save (new term)" and the list in the selector should be reloaded and focused on the newly added term.

    Could you please check this issue?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The new term is only created after publishing the post. So users have to select another taxonomy as the requirement of the field. I will inform the development team to support this case in future updates.
