Wow, that worked almost perfectly! Thank you so much!!!
There are only two more minor revisions that I saw need to be done.
1. If a user does not select a category at all, then the blog post goes into “Uncategorized”, which is a problem because “Uncategorized” is a higher ranked category than “User Blogs”. This means any “Uncategorized” posts will be organized in the Official Blog, not the “User Blogs” and its child categories. I have since created an additional “Uncategorized” child category under “User Blogs”. Is there a way for someone who does not select a category to be automatically assigned to “User Blogs -> Uncategorized”?
2. Is there a way to order which category is listed first on the drop down list?
I realized I made a slight mistake in my original description. I said “I then want them to be able to select ONE category from sub-categories:” followed by “So the blog post category would end up looking like “User Blogs, X” on the post page”. However, I realized that sometimes I need for the blog post categories to show three categories like “User Blogs, X, X”. This is because third level sub-categories, like “Dating & Relationships”, are structured like “User Blogs -> Pick-Up -> Dating & Relationships”.
To summarize, I need for users to only be able to select one category, but if the chosen category is a third level sub-category, I’d like for it to also display it’s second level parent category. I understand if this is too late to request, but I thought I’d throw it out there if it’s an easy fix. Thanks again!
It seems my category list formatting didn’t take in my original post. I’ve attached a screenshot here instead. http://i.imgur.com/kTVXSw8.png
If I can throw in another small request, I’d like to know how to remove the bullets from the category list as well. Thanks!
