I am using two instances of the widget one is list the other checkboxes. I want to select items in any of the views and have the change reflect in the other view. But found out that they operate completely differently.
When I have all the checkboxes selected correctly the list view doesn't show them as selected and gives me an option (+) to add them to the selection. Also it doesn't show count at all. Count is 0 even that there are related posts. When I do click them they are added to the url using a different method.
First they are added with a + to the end of the url (I need ,) and second the url changes to ?category_name=cat1+cat2+cat3
For comparison the checkboxes add the items what appears to be category IDs with the following url ?qmt%5Bcategory%5D%5B%5D=13&qmt%5Bcategory%5D%5B%5D=18&qmt%5Bcategory%5D%5B%5D=11
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???? Where can I change this behavior in the code? Any help will be greatly appreciated, the plugin is great but I can't understand the reason for this decision.
What I need seems to be extremely simple. I am fine with any solution that gives me the following functionality
If using the list view example I want to click on cat4(currently not selected) and get this
Click on cat1(currently selected) and get this
The change should be reflected in both the list and checkbox view of the plugin. They should show the corrected categories selected.
