In using the “Show” category to expand list entries, the SHOW category also shows up in the category dropdown menu. How can I hide it from the dropdown?
Hmmm… it’s actually been quite awhile since I had to think about that. I think this will work.
Make sure the
Show category is a root parent category. Meaning that it is not a child category/has no parent.
The categories you wish to display in the drop down need to be a child of a root parent. So, create a new root parent, the name is not important, but let’s call it Dropdown. Edit your categories and choose “Dropdown” as the parent.
The category hierarchy should be something like this:
Now change the shortcode to this:
[connections category=X enable_category_by_root_parent='TRUE']
X in the above shortcode to be the category ID number for the “Dropdown” category.
Hope this helps! let me know.
