Also it is possible to use custom actions (must started from ‘call_filter_’) for translations, example: [taxonomy_chain_menu label_taxonomy=’call_filter_chain1′ label_post=’call_filter_chain1-post’]. In file functions.php add next code:

add_filter('chain1', function($args) {

    $res = 'Producer';
    //for WPML compatibility as an example
    if (defined('ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE')) {
        switch (ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE) {
            case 'es':
                $res = 'Productor';
                break;
            case 'uk':
                $res = 'Виробник';
                break;
        }
    }

    return $res;
}, 10, 1);

✅ label_post: label of the posts drop-down. To use action instead of text in file functions.php add next code: (must started from ‘call_filter_’)

add_filter('chain1-post', function($args) {

    $res = 'Select car';
    //for WPML compatibility as an example
    if (defined('ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE')) {
        switch (ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE) {
            case 'es':
                $res = 'Seleccionar coche';
                break;
            case 'uk':
                $res = 'Яке твое авто';
                break;
            default:
                $res = 'Select your car';
                break;
        }
    }

    return $res;
}, 10, 1);

✅ button_title: title of the button at the end of the chain. By default it is ‘GO!’. Also is possible to use action (must started from ‘call_filter_’), example: [taxonomy_chain_menu post_slug=’product’ taxonomy=’product_cat’ button_title=’call_filter_chain1-btn’]

add_filter('chain1-btn', function($args) {

    $res = 'Take it!';
    //for WPML compatibility as an example
    if (defined('ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE')) {
        switch (ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE) {
            case 'es':
                $res = 'Tomar lo!';
                break;
            case 'uk':
                $res = 'Забираймо!';
                break;
        }
    }

    return $res;
}, 10, 1);

✅ no jQuery – pure JavaScript!
