FAQ

Can I control which categories automatically toggle?

Absolutely! version 1.2 introduced a filter called super_category_toggler.
Pass back an array of categories you want to toggle and the rest will be excluded
by default.

Reviews

Not bad but …

… it also unchecks the parent category if you uncheck a child even if there are other childs of that parent that are still checked.

This seems like a bug to me.

Works as expeced.

Some actions on my posts are triggered with use the parent categories (if in_category() …). I forgot to set the parent category so many times, but that’s over now… 🙂

Excellent

Helps keep our users/authors in line. Does exactly what it needs to do by highlighting the parent category when selecting a child. Thanks!
