get_taxonomy() WP 2.3.0

Gets an object containing settings (data) of the specified taxonomy.

The function retrieves taxonomy data, not a list of terms of the specified taxonomy. To get the list of terms, use get_terms() or wp_list_categories().

The get_taxonomy function will first check that the parameter string given is a taxonomy object and if it is, it will return it.

Examples

#1. Get taxonomy data

To demonstrate how this function works, let's get "category" taxonomy data, which is attached to the "post" post type:

$category_tax_features = get_taxonomy('category');

print_r( $category_tax_features );

Displays:

stdClass Object (
