    The answer to "is it possible" is typically "yes". Please elaborate on how are you implementing metabox, what have you tried and what specific issues had you encountered trying to achieve it. – Rarst Dec 13 '13 at 15:39

    How you are displaying the meta-box ? have you used any custom metabox plugin ?( like Rilwis's ) A category dropdown can be generated like this: wp_dropdown_categories(array('hide_empty' => 0, 'name' => 'select_name', 'hierarchical' => true)); – Subharanjan Dec 13 '13 at 16:06
  • no, i create my own metabox using custom html inside it, ah thanks, it's seen on my dropdown now. and just save it with categories ID inside dropdown menu,right ?. – user3073032 Dec 13 '13 at 16:15
