How to change category select flow in search bar

Hello Andrey, I encountered a problem that the categories in the ad search are not convenient, since all the categories and subcategories are mixed in one place and it is difficult to understand which subcategory belongs to which category.

But when adding ads, selecting the category is ‘Very convenient’ since only categories are displayed and the selection of a subcategory occurs after selecting a category.

How can I do the same in the search section?
I hope you don’t need to hire specialists on Fiverr for this, please tell me how to do this, I can do it.

Thank you


Please try to use this PHP snippet How to add custom code snippets - HivePress Help Center : Enable the Select Category page (deprecated) in the Add Listing process #hivepress #listings · GitHub

​I hope this is helpful to you.

Andrey, you misunderstood me.
This code includes selecting a category by image when adding ads (which was in the old version of the plugin in 2022)
I need to select a category on the main page in the search section, just like on the category selection page when adding an ad. That is, so that the selection of subcategories occurs after the selection of categories
A simple example - a user is looking for the desired advertisement in the search section - he selects a category - and it is not convenient for him to do this because the subcategories and categories are all mixed up - for example, subcategories can coincide with different categories, but when choosing, it is all mixed up - this is very inconvenient - you need to do it step by step just like when adding ads
I do not need to hire specialists for this case, please help me with this
Now I’ll show you with an example of images.

Thank you
Help me @andrii @ihor


Sorry, there’s no simple code snippet for this, it would require a custom implementation. If customizations beyond the available features are required for your site, please consider hiring someone for custom work However, we plan to add this feature in the future.
