I am using the Simple hierarchical select on a view for a an exposed taxonomy term, but I want the first level of the taxonomy to be preselected, so that the user can only choose the second and third levels.
I tried to do this by adding jquery to change the first element, but it doesn't load the second level taxonomy then.

Is there a parameter in this module so I can preselect the first level taxonomy term and not let the user change that?

I made a patch to allow you to choose the parent taxonomy at a level lower than the root. I will post a link to it soon . If anyone wants to ask me about it in the meantime please write to me.
