By default whenever you select a category it moved it to the top of the term list, which in most cases it pretty user friendly. I want to disable this featured and leave my term list in the default order no matter what is selected.
The reason I want this is because i have a script running that relies on
<ul class="children"> to be available, but if a term is selected it removes it from this format and to the top of the list. I've search around but wasn't using the correct keywords to pull anything useful. I'm sure I need to do something with the
Walker_Category_Checklist Walker but walkers are very much a mystery to me.
I'll be playing around with that and some WordPress files to find how what function is pushing it to the top but in the meantime I figured if anybody has a solution on-hand: How do I disable WordPress pushing selected terms to the top of the Post Category Metabox?
