I'm having trouble making some options appear as checkboxes in an exposed view form. The problem is that the "Allow multiple selection" option is not available in the filter. enter image description here

How can i make it visible. "Allow multiple selection" option.


You can go for Better Exposed Filters module.

The Better Exposed Filters module replaces the Views' default single- or multi-select boxes with radio buttons or checkboxes, respectively. Description fields and Select All/None links can be added to exposed filters to make for a better user experience.

    You have to change the "Exposed form style" under Advanced section and then in the Advanced > Exposed Form Style > settings exactly for the exposed filter you can select to use Display as "Checkboxes / Radio buttons" - checkboxes would be if the "Allow multiple selections" is checked (this time under Filter criteria > exact filter ) – Nikolay Borisov Feb 7 '17 at 10:07
