Bestia – Post Types & Taxonomies

How Can We Help?

Please read first about WordPress Taxonomies.

WordPress by default has 2 taxonomies (category and tag which we are using as video categories and video tags in this theme) but we have created other 6 Taxonomies which you will see below with more details.

So, we are using the default wordpress post in bestia for the video gallery, this means that we are using category and tag as video category and video tag.

Post Types and Taxonomies

This theme has 3 more custom post types:

  1. “gallery” Photo Gallery
  2. “blogs” Blog
  3. “gif” Gif

All custom post types above have 2 custom taxonomies for each one.

Photo Gallery:

  1. “phototype” Photo Gallery Category
  2. “photo_tag” Photo Gallery Tag


  1. “blogtype” Blog Category
  2. “blog_tag” Blog Tag


  1. “giftype” Gif Category
  2. “gif_tag” Gif Tag

Performers & Channels

There are other two custom taxonomies in bestia like performer and channel.

You can attach a performer to any video or photo gallery post same like a tag or category, but channels are not allowed in the photo galleries yet.

Taxonomy Images

All taxonomies here (Categories, Channels and Performers) have also the image support.

Performer Images

To attach a profile image to any performer navigate to performers tab under the posts or photo galleries.
A performer image must be larger than 190 x 278 pixels because we are using aqua resizer for wordpress and you can’t add external urls, this feature requires uploaded images in the wordpress media library and php GD Library installed on the server.

Channel and Category Images

This two taxonomies will show the last post image from that category or channel if you didn’t upload a custom image yet, once you upload an image it will overwrite and will show the custom image instead.

Again here the display works via aqua resizer and it requires uploaded images in media library larger than 260 x 175 pixels.
