Hierarchical taxonomy terms not showing hierarchically

I have a taxonomy, “Companies”, which has 'hierarchical' => true, set.
I confirmed it is working hierarchically…
I can set a Parent term.

However, on my edit-tags.php list, the column is not showing things hierarchically.

I think ACP may be the issue…
I think, out of the box, WordPress’ term Name column indents any sub-terms. But I don’t see this here…

Hi Robert,

You’re correct, by default, a hierarchical taxonomy overview shows the items hierarchical on the overview page.

With Admin Columns, this only works when the default Name column is added to the overview page and you use no sorting. So in your case, I think your overview is sorted by the Name column, which tells our plugin to sort the overview by Title and ignore any logic from WordPress.

If you want to show the terms hierarchical, you can click on the ‘reset sorting’ button on top of your overview. Can you try it out and let me know if that works for you?

Ah-hah – yes – Reset Sorting results in showing the indentation hyphen.
