      Hi WC Lovers,

      I would like vendors to be able to choose only the lowest subcateogry when adding new product.

      For example, I have categories such as:

      * Main category
      – Subcategory 1
      – Subcategory 2
      –> Subcategory 2A
      –> Subcategory 2B
      – Subcategory 3

      Therefore, vendor should not be able to choose Main Category, or Subcategory 2, because these categories have their subcategories. So the system should not allow to publish/add this product, as the lowest subcategory is not selected. Also, when vendor selects Subcategory 2A, the product should be added only to Subcategory 2A (not to Main Category, Subcategory 2).

      Please let me know if this is possible to achieve or not.

      Please add this code to your site for the purpose –

      add_action( 'after_wcfm_products_manage', function() {
      	jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
      		setTimeout(function() {
      			$('#product_cats_checklist').children('.product_cats_checklist_item').each(function() {
      				if( $(this).children('.product_taxonomy_sub_checklist').length > 0 ) {
      		}, 1000);
      }, 50 );

      Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php
      In case you do not have child theme then add code using this plugin –¬†

      Thank You

      Thank you for the code, however this code doesn’t work.

      My vendor can still publish product using main category, any sub level category.

      Is there anything I should change in this code to be ‘applicable’ for my website?

      Thank you for your help.
