M Hi there, This morning I have bought the plugin and I was searching for category with Ajax functionality. As said here it is available in the free version, so I am really suprised it is not in the paid version. This was one of the main things I really liked about the plugin. The reason why is as follows: My website has about 8 categories which each have a lot of sub-categories. Users are going to post on my site and the posts has to be assigned to the sub-categories and not the main category. In the dropdown in de paid version the user can also select the main categorie. (Excluding the main-categories from the dropdown is not really an optin, because it then becomes a long list with no hierarchie. Any other solution?

You can try this solution for now if you want.

Thanks for the quick reply. I did came accross this function and already put it in my functions.php, but the problem with this function is, that the post is also saved in the main-category because it is selected. It only has to be saved in the sub-category

I would realy like to know is there is a solution for this problem. Otherwise, I would have to ask you to deposit my money back. (Currently developping on localhost, so I did not activate it yet)

My whole site depends on user submitted posts and the categorie selection is very important.

Currently there isn’t any solution, sorry!

Sadly we have “NO” refund policy.

Hopefully we’ll bring the feature back in a future version.

Maybe you can help me out. I came accross this solution, but this is for back-end posting. Can you please help me out so I can use it in your front-end plugin:

I don’t know how to re write it and put it in my functions.php:

add_action( 'admin_footer-post.php',     'disable_top_categories_checkboxes' );
add_action( 'admin_footer-post-new.php', 'disable_top_categories_checkboxes' );

 * Disable parent checkboxes in Post Editor.

function disable_top_categories_checkboxes() {
    global $post_type;

    if ( 'post' != $post_type )
        <script type="text/javascript">
            jQuery( "#category-all ul.children" ).each( function() {
                jQuery(this).closest( "ul" ).parent().children().children( "input" ).attr( 'disabled', 'disabled' )

Do you know that this snippet does? It just disables the child checkboxes.

I know what it does, it disables the parent categories from being selectable
See this link

I wonder if it is possible to embed it with the solution you provided in your first reply.

Maybe there are two other alternatives you can provide?

First one:

All categories and sub-categories appear in 1 dropdown , but the main category can not be selectable

Second option:
Make the checkboxes radiobuttons, so in this case only 1 sub-categorie can be selected.

The first solution can be done with one line 😀
[js]jQuery(‘#category option.level-0’).attr(‘disabled’, ‘disabled’);[/js]

Sometimes solutions can be so simple 🙂

Can you help me how to put it in my functions.php?

January 7, 2014 at 3:23 pm 14204

Never mind, I have got it, thanks a lot
