I have a hierarchical taxonomy like below Hierarchical taxonomy

In Drupal 7 there was a module name hierarchical select to achieve this. But it is no longer support for Drupal 8. Is there another way to add this to a content type, so a user can select an element from this taxonomy. I need that to be hierarchical.

  • No, there is no Hierarchical Select for D8 at this time. If you need that module, use Drupal 7. Nov 24 '17 at 6:08
  • I don't need that module. But is there another way to add something hierarchical to a content type @PatrickKenny Nov 24 '17 at 6:11
  • You can create hierarchical taxonomies in D8 out of the box. You can add them to a content type with an entity reference. But, you won't have hierarchical selection in the widget. Nov 24 '17 at 6:14

You can take a look on Simple hierarchical select and Client-side hierarchical select module.

Simple hierarchical select

Simple hierarchical select defines a new form widget for taxonomy fields to select a term by "browsing" through the vocabularies hierarchy. The widget is available in node forms and as Views exposed filter.

This module has been inspired by Hierarchical select but is much simpler (hence the name ;) ).

Client-side hierarchical select

A simple client-side hierarchical select widget for taxonomy terms.

The widget provides three settings:

Force selection of deepest level (If checked the user will be forced to select terms from the deepest level.)

Parent (Allows to select a parent term to use only a subtree of a vocabulary for this field.)

Labels per hierarchy-level
