Super Slow Long Custom Taxonomy Term List

    I have created a form that submits a custom post type. One of the key dropdowns in the form is populated by a custom taxonomy that I need to hold approximately 2500 terms, and more to follow (users can add their own using the forms conditional logic. New entries will be saved into the database).

    Unfortunately, given the huge number of terms, the page won't even load! Is there any way to lazy load the terms? Or perhaps use the enhanced UI such that it only queries the database of terms when a user is searching for the one their looking for?

    Any solutions or ideas would be hugely appreciated as it's critical I make this work!

    Thanks!

  2. How are you loading the taxonomy items into the form now?

    Hi

    I'm using the 'Populate with Taxonomy' option in the back end...

    Cheers

  4. Are you using an additional plugin to provide that functionality? I don't have that option in my installation.
