taxonomy – Delete Term via edit-tags.php


I might get rep’ed down on this – but is there suppose to be a “Delete” link on the edit-tags.php page? Note: not the WP-List-Table, but the actual page where you specifically view the terms individually.

It seems as if they added on the option here:


It seems like I was looking at the wrong WP file. The individual term page is located at: wp-admin/edit-tag-form.php, and there is no mention of any “Delete”.

Knowing this, is it possible to add on a delete button to this page OR creating a “Delete” column onto the WP-List-Table. I tried it this way, but received an “undefined variable ‘tag'” for the column.

Here is what I tried:

add_filter( 'manage_customcpt_custom_column', 'customcpt_taxnomy_add_columns', 10, 3 );
function saloncms_product_cpt_taxnomy_add_columns( $columns, $column, $id ) {
    if ( $column == 'delete' ) {
    "<a class="delete-tag" href="" . wp_nonce_url( "edit-tags.php?action=delete&amp;taxonomy=$taxonomy&amp;tag_ID=$tag->term_id", "delete-tag_' . $tag->term_id ) . "'>" . __( 'Delete' ) . "</a>";
    return $columns;
