I'm using Gravity forms to allow my users to create posts from the front end, but I'm having an issue making a certain form-function I'd like to have work and display nicely.

Essentially, I want my users to be able to select multiple terms from a particular taxonomy... However this Taxonomy happens to be HUGE -- it has about 150 entries... AND it's hierarchical.

When I set this up as a "Checkbox" type field and populate it from the taxonomy, it spits out a giant single list of all the terms. I can clean up some of the layout issues obviously, but I'd like to perhaps find a better solution that this overall.

First off I want to hide the parent terms altogether, just the 2nd layer of terms are important.

Secondly, while I could clean up the formatting a bit for the giant list of check-boxes, I'd rather have something where my users could perhaps select 1 term, and then have a little + button that when pressed, would add another field of the same type that would allow them to enter a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th etc term from that taxonomy.

I'm not exactly sure the best way to go about this however, any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

I also use gravity forms and find that their documentation and support forms (at gravityhelp.com) Seem to be a better source for help. With that being said I'm sure you can hook into your category field. – BandonRandon Oct 22 '11 at 19:58
