I love the Posts Page with dynamic filters! Awesome work. But after a while, I notice a problem… I’m using my ‘Post Page’ for my News section and I want to show only ‘news’ category with all subcategories.
From default Cera is showing all categories and things are going messy when you have many, many categories on your page. Is there a way to force Cera to show only chosen category+child categories on ‘Post Page’?March 11, 2021 at 16:45 #29703
I just learned that using ‘Front Page Category’ plugin I can choose which category I want to show and it works for the content, but such categories will still stay in filters…
Is there a way to delete some categories from the filter?March 11, 2021 at 17:11 #29704
This is standard behavior with WordPress, I’m afraid.
As this is not breaking the page, changing this is considered customization work. Unfortunately, this is a service that we do not provide.
We only share snippet only to solve issues with our theme. Any further request for CSS snippets will have to be part of a defect that needs to be fixed urgently. No snippets will be shared otherwise.
If you want to go further with the customization of your website, we advise that you hire a freelancer to do it for you.
If you’re on a tight budget, we recommend you to require the services from Envato Studio freelancers (https://studio.envato.com/explore/websites-programming). This web platform gives you access to developers who have already experience with theme customizations, and for very competitive prices.
We thank you to share this solution with us. I’m sure it will help other users facing the same issue. By doing this, you’re be making a great contribution to this forum, and we thank you very much for that! #SharingIsCaring 💪🏻
Thank you for your understanding. 🙂March 12, 2021 at 10:13 #29735
Standard behaviour with WordPress is to display all the posts, but filters aren’t I believe.
Dynamic Filter is part of Cera theme, isn’t it? I understand that this is not an issue with the theme but would be good to have at least help with its functionality…
As I mentioned I managed to display only the categories I want (WordPress behaviour has been changed) but this didn’t affect Cera’s filters. Can you at least give me a hint on how to deal with this?March 12, 2021 at 15:37 #29743
Thank you for your feedback Jakub. 🙂
Grimlock Isotope is a plugin we made to dynamically show all the categories of your WordPress website. However, it’s important to understand it didn’t catch the categories one by one. It use a default WordPress behaviour to make all the categories visible and use them to dynamically show the related posts.
Unfortunately, to get the feature you’re trying to achieve, you need to change this default WordPress behaviour. To our knowledge, there is no plugin that you could install to add this feature to your website. We think that this feature requires custom development work.
As alternative, I can recommend you to use Grimlock Term Query block and pick the specifics categories you want to show. Then, when your visitors will click on the selected category, they will be redirected to the archive of this category. However, note that Grimlock Isotope will not be used as it only works on the blog page with all the categories.
Hope you’ll understand. Don’t hesitate to tell me if you need more explanations. 🙂

Hi, many thanks for your help.
Grimlock Term Query won’t do the trick. I love the way how it works now, the dynamic filter is just a perfect solution! The user doesn’t need to reload the page. The downside of the current function is the display of all categories, which is impractical for larger sites where posts are used in several completely different places\ways (I have post categories that are not about the news).
If the filters could avoid empty categories (3rd party plugin can show only selected categories, so any other should be empty)that should do.
In this case, I understand only the help of a freelancer is a solution?March 15, 2021 at 12:49 #29793
You’re welcome. 🙂
Note that by default, empty categories will be hidden. However, if a child category has a post, its parent will also be displayed, even if the parent category has no post.
To our knowledge, there is no plugin that you could install to change this behaviour to your website. In consequence, our recommendation is to hire a freelancer to do this job for you.
