I can't find it, there is a taxonomy Term widget but the feature is different.
How to display a menu based on hierarchy of terms under a Taxonomy ?

It's there: make sure you enable the Taxonomy Main Menu feature.

Sorry but I don't see what you are talking about ?
I have only one feature with the orchard taxonomies module.
And in Navigation I have no taxonomy related Menuitem.
Sebastien mentionned that he could have forgotten it on the issue I opened ?
Have you more info ?

Oh, you're talking about the Orchard.Taxonomies module in the 1.x branch. Yes, that seems to be missing some navigation integration.

If that is the case, then the work I did in this pull request is correct...

Or is there another way we want this done in Orchard 1.7?

I think your TaxonomyMenuItem implementation is correct, but I'm not sure we need the TaxonomyMenuWidget anymore, since we already have the MenuWidget.
Sébastien will know what's still missing and what needs to be included. Thanks!

I think it's simply a TaxoMenuItem which is missing, no more need for the TaxoMenuWindget.....but it could be necessary to maintain a compatibility layer because many sites use the old widget from contrib.

Implementing it right now.

Design: Be able to select a taxonomy and optionally a term within, which would be the root of the menu items, itself optionally included in the navigation.
Filtering the menu is done by the Menu Widget.

The migration from Orchard.Cache might not include the creation of the Menu Widget, like the migration to 1.6 only included migrating menu items. Thus it might be a manual upgrade but it should be very simple.

Sebastien, I have reported an issue in TermWidget....unable to understand why (but found a second small one on the date names)....

Every menuitem is added under the upper level Taxonomy item independently of different tree branches...
