|John||Hi, The frontend pro is working great for me. However, there is one tiny issue. I have two category select items on the post data forms. When a user goes to edit the post only the top category selector "remembers" which category the post was categorized to. The second goes back to select. Is there anyway to change this, perhaps I'm missing a setting. Thanks in advance for your help.|

I just checked with multi-select, checkbox. no issue found !
what type option you set at form category settings?

I’m using child of Id and dropdown. I have two category selectors on the form. The 1st one holds the selected category upon editing, the second does not. Thanks.

can you share your site details? so i can check this issue? Reply as private if you want.

I can share, but you need to login to actually use or see the forms.

Hi, I saw the test post. Did you try to edit it from the posting dashboard? Thanks again,

You are using the category field twice in the form, that’s why the problem is happening. You can create another taxonomy using this plugin and use this for city.

Thanks, I looked at this plugin. But, will it work with current categories? I used the regular categories so I can build menus from the categories. Can custom taxonomies be made into menus? Also, I already have quite a few categories set up, that’s why I’m wondering if I can use the existing ones and create taxonomies now? Thanks

By the way why can’t I put two category boxes in the form? It does function

When you are adding a category dropdown, only 1 item can be selected. So

Is there anyway around this. I don’t believe I can use custom taxonomies the same way throughout the site. The regular categories work better for me. I tried changing the top selection area to multiselect but it still causes the same problem. The two separate selection boxes work well for the initial post, just not the edit. So I think the plugin is allowing me to select the two different categories from different parts of the category hierarchy but just can hold them on the edit. Is there anyway to fix this without custom taxonomies? Thanks

Sorry for another reply but I originally tried using the custom taxonomy feature with your plugin but it caused other problems with the theme navigations. It works better with standard categories (breadcrumbs and such) so, the custom taxonomies did not work well for me. I have no coding knowledge and I couldn’t figure out how to make the custom taxonomies navigate well for users. I hope there’s some type of “fix” for this issue or I’m kind of stuck. Thanks again for your help.

Sorry, there isn’t any other way around!

The only way I just figured out around is to set one of the category
