Problem: The wpv-post-taxonomy shortcode outputs all terms of a taxonomy regardless of hierarchy. How is it possible to only output the top-level terms and not the child terms?
Solution: Custom code is required because the native get_the_terms function used by the wpv-post-taxonomy shortcode does not include a parameter for such a feature.
A custom shortcode to output only the top-level terms is shown in the reply below: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/displaying-only-the-main-taxonomies-not-subchildren-on-a-custom-post/#post-585379
