    I have a nested category Asia->Philippines

    However, I prefer to only show the parent categories on the filter to reduce clutter

    If the user unchecks the parent category, shouldn’t the child also not show

    Here the parent category “Asia” is checked and the posts under the child “Philippines” is showing

    Here I have unchecked the category “Asia”, but the child posts are still showing

    Is there a way for the child posts to not be shown without adding the child category in the filter?

    Hi,

    It should be excluded.

    Are those items actually within the “Asia” category as well? Or only in the “Philippinies”?
    If they are not assigned the “Asia” category, then they will not be excluded – as there is no direct connection bewteen the item and the parent category.

    Best,
