    Unfortunately, it’s not supported at the moment. Taxonomy field (and user, post fields) stores the term IDs in the database.

    Just curious, why do you need to store slug instead of ID?

    Hey Anh – bumping this old topic, hope you see.

    I too would like to use the taxonomy slug in the Taxonomy select field.

    My purpose is in a custom search form using MB fields. WP doesn’t seem to search term IDs passed along by URL.

    • Any suggested way to do this?
    • If I could add data-slug attributes to the taxonomy <option> elements, that would also help (instead of changing the option value)

    Much thanks
