    Dear Support

    What we would like achieve is to pick terms, but from different categories and show them in a single drop-down?

    The final search form should look like something like this:

    Search box:
    [ text search box ]

    Settings box:
    [ single dropdown with multiple term from different categories, like term X1, X2 from category X, Y1, Y2, Y3 from category Y]
    [ normal category A dropdown ]
    [ normal category B dropdown ]

    Is it possible to do this, even a special hook or custom ASP template file?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Thanks for the details, it helps a lot!

    Do you mean displaying terms from different taxonomies (like categories, tags, product categories) mixed within a single drop-down?

    I’m afraid that is not possible to do – even by changing the templates or by making a hook to force displaying terms from different taxonomies, as the filtering on the server side would still not work, as the taxonomy would be incorrect for the terms.
    I usually recommend a custom code where I can, but in this case this is not possible without completely changing the core plugin code.

    Best,
    Ernest Marcinko
