This filter can be used to change the default taxonomy name “aioseo-location-category”.

Arguments (1)

  1. $name (string) – The taxonomy name.

Example code snippet

The code snippet below is just an example of how this filter can be used. In the example below, the taxonomy name is changed from the default “aioseo-location-category” to “franchise-state”.

add_filter( 'aioseo_local_business_taxonomy_name', 'aioseo_change_local_business_taxonomy_name' );

function aioseo_change_local_business_taxonomy_name( $name ) {
	$name = 'franchise-state';
	return $name;

IMPORTANT: If there were posts under the “aioseo-location-category” name you’ll need to change the taxonomy name directly in the database to recover them in the wp-admin screen. That can be achieved by executing the query below in the database. Change ‘wp_term_taxonomy’ to your term_taxonomy table name and taxonomy to the names you’re changing.
Remember to always backup your database before executing such a change.

UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy SET taxonomy = 'franchise-state' WHERE taxonomy = 'aioseo-location-category'
