My website allows uses to post posts of a custom post type ("place").
I would like to display the same "Categories" meta box seen in WordPress dashboard when you add or edit a post on frontend:
This is because the "Categories" meta box or hierarichical checkboxes is simply the best way to view and edit the categories a post belongs to.
How do I the "Categories" meta box on frontend?
I do know JQuery so feel free to throw in JQuery stuffs if any. I would strongly prefer an approach to replicate what WordPress does for adding/ editing a post in backend, instead of a hack from scratch.
