This module provides hierarchical term formatters for taxonomy reference fields. In other words, it can display a taxonomy term reference on, say, a node as Parent > Child, rather than just Child.


  • Uses standard taxonomy term reference fields.
  • Displays all parents of the referenced term, in addition to the term itself. Can also be configured to only show the parents, or just the root parent term.
  • Optionally links terms to their term pages.
  • Control the markup that wraps and separates the terms.


Install and enable the module. Go to Admin » Structure » Content types and open the Display settings page for a taxonomy term field. (Taxonomy term fields may also be available on other entities than nodes.)

Choose the Hierarchical terms formatter and click the cog wheel to configure the formatter.
