I know that in Drupal 8 the taxonomy term reference is deprecated and it's implemented by an entity reference in Drupal 8 Core.

Is there any widget to select items by checkbox list instead of the default autocomplete entity reference widget?



  1. Go to Manage form display of the content type
  2. Go to the entity reference field and there you can find a list of options including checkbox .
