Child and parent categories split

  • Hi,

    I am looking for a way to have 2 fields in form. One field will show from wordpress categories , the parent only categories. The second field will show the child categories from the parents category that user has select in first field.

    Example of my categories:

    City 1
    -School 1
    -School 2
    City 2
    -School 3
    City 3
    -School 4
    -School 5

    Example of what i want:

    Field 1 : City : “Select”
    Field 2 : School: “Select”

    I am using select for selecting categories but they are show all together parents and subs. I don’t want that because i have more than 100 parents and 600 sub categories so it is hard to explore all categories.

    Is there any way that i can make it work?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Did you ever find a solution to this, antonisg?

    I’m looking for this same functionality.


  • I’m in a same boat.

  • I have the same problem, I should have more information on this.

  • ACF cannot do this without building custom JavaScript an AJAX requests. You may also need to use a different type of field. I have some examples of doing this here
