Filter menu shows term_id instead of name (Pods 2.0, relationship field column)

I’m using WordPress 4.0, Pods 2.4.3, and Admin Columns Pro

In my database I have several pods that contain relationship fields related to other pods (e.g. the “staff” pod contains a field named “department” that is related to the “staff_department” pod).

In admin view, the column for “department” displays the names of each department as expected (e.g. “Accounting,” “Communications,” “Human Resources,” etc.). However, when I enable filtering on this column, the filtering drop down menu displays each department’s term_id instead of its name (e.g. “11” vs “Communications”).

How can I get the filter drop down menu to display the name instead of the term_id?

Never mind, I was able to figure it out using my_cac_filter_label.

If I may make a suggestion, it would be a lot easier if I could change the label text within the Admin Columns settings page itself instead of editing the functions.php file. Maybe a simple “database field to be displayed” control could be added into an upcoming release? :D

Thanks for your report! Just to clarify: the value in the columns is the term name, and the value in the filtering dropdown is the term ID?

Yep. It’s an easy workaround, but right now if I modify the column names, the filter code will need to be updated as well. An admin screen for this would be convenient!

One way to fix this would be to introduce a Taxonomy type for Custom Fields. This way we actually know what the value contains, a term ID, and can display the label accordingly.
