For my users, I need them to be able to have both radio buttons and checkboxes in the categories when posting.

I have seen a solution to make the checkboxes when selecting a category radio buttons, so that a user can only ever choose 1 category. However, I have a scenario where two categories are mutually exclusive and the rest are a free for all.

So, the user MUST choose between category A/B. But can then have free choice of categories C/D/E/F/G/H, ETC

Is there a way to do this?



  • If you make category A/B in select box and other category in checkbox then it will be done.

  • Thanks @KuljeetSingh - but do you need to edit core WP files to do this or can you do this elsewhere? Jun 28 '13 at 10:42
