• The plugin does what it says it will do regarding non-hierarchical taxonomies. However, I realized that this is of limited utility to my application because all of my taxonomies are hierarchical.

    If a Pro version were available to allow mandatory selection from only the first-level children terms of a specified parent term, then I would be very interested in that. If that is a possibility, please let me know.

    It works for hierarchical taxonomies exactly how radio buttons are expected to work.. ie: by restricting a choice to any single selection.

    Your use case sounds interesting, but quite unique, so I would advise you to pursue custom development. I have no intention of pursuing a pro version at this time.

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    I suspect that my solution will be as follows (for a specific hierarchical taxonomy on single post):

    1. Capture a list of all of the post’s current terms for the taxonomy;
    2. For a specific ‘parent’ term, remove the existing child terms from the list of post terms;
    3. Use a custom meta box to display only the specific parent term and its related child terms, and allow the user to select the new child term(s).
    4. Once selected, add the new child term(s) to the list of post terms;
    5. Update the post with the updated list of post terms.
