Is there a way to force users to choose a subcategory when posting?

If a category has subcategories, can we make it so choosing a subcategory is mandatory?

Revoke Posting Permissions from categories that You don’t want them to post into!

I’ll try this, thanks!

Hi. When I change a top category permissions, they are reinitialized to the default ones (everyone can create/reply/view).


Assuming I’m understanding the problem here, you first need to remove the existing everyone condition by clicking the blue cross.

Then you can add a new condition so that everyone can see only.

Well I did it but it didn’t change anything, but that’s not a big deal after all. I’ll keep my categories as there are.
The idea behind my question was to create a “classifieds” category with two subcategories: “sell” and “buy” so the user has to mandatory choose one subcategory.


Hmmm, that sounds strange. Did you remember to save the changed settings?

To Make this work, Check if these Conditions are met:

in the Classifieds Category,Change permission so that:
Everyone Can - See
Staff can - Create/Reply/See

in Buy and Sell Categories:
Everyone can Create/Reply/See

it works fine.
