QIIME2 taxa barplot only showing level 1


I'm encountering an issue a previous user had experienced (Qiime taxa barplot only shows level 1 - #9 by thermokarst) where only Level 1 is showing up in the dropdown menu of my taxa barplot. I don't encounter any errors when trying to create the plot or other artifacts, and I don't seem to be having the primer/classifier errors that other user had.

Hi @SJohnson,
Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.
It looks as though you are importing data from elsewhere into Qiime2 that does not follow the expected formatting.
For example, have a look at the taxonomy file from the "Moving Pictures" tutorial and compare that to taxonomy.qzv (2.1 MB) . You can see that your taxonomy file has 6 columns for taxonomy whereas the taxa bar plot is only expecting 1, in the format like k__Bacteria; p__Proteobacteria; c__Alphaproteobacteria; o__Rickettsiales; f__mitochondria.
You'll need to reformat your taxonomy file to be plug n play with taxa barplots

That did the trick, thanks so much!
