I am working on a CRED form to edit entries for my custom post type.

I would like to suppress the check box that displays next to the PARENT category name.

For example, if I have a parent category of "Car Type" and a child category of "Volvo" - I want the user inputting the new info to tick the box for "Volvo" - but there is no need to tick the box next to "Car Type" - and yet the CRED form automatically displays the tick box for the Parent Category. Is there a way to suppress that box so they know they only have to tick the appropriate child categories?

Likewise - I would like to suppress the bullets at the beginnings of each line. A check box is plenty - I don't need multiple bullets as well.

As an example, please see the screen shot where I show my current CRED form.

I would like the form to look like this;

(box) Musical
(box) Opera
(box) Play

Instead - as you can see in my jpg - I get this:

(bullet) (box) Genre
(bullet) (bullet) (box) Musical
(bullet) (bullet) (box) Opera
(bullet) (bullet) (box) Play

Thanks for your help!

You can only make it hidden by using CSS on that particular element. If you can provide a URL to page where I can see this output, I can provide some solution accordingly.



Here is the URL to the output:

Thank you for providing the URL. Please copy the following CSS and paste into the CSS area of your CRED form:

ul.wpt-form-set-checkboxes li input[type=checkbox] {
    display: none;

ul.wpt-form-set-checkboxes li ul input[type="checkbox"] {
    display: inline;

ul.wpt-form-set-checkboxes li {
    list-style: none;

It should look like the attached image after you have applied the above CSS.


Awesome - that worked beautifully - thanks!!!
