I have a client with a really large taxonomy, which is used for a certain node type. My client wants that the parent term of a chosen subterm, to also be used for a node.

Let's say that this is the taxonomy:

  • Parent1
    • Child1
    • Child2
  • Parent2
    • Child3

If the user checks (they are printed as checkboxes) either child, its parent term will also be used.

Is there already a module for that, or something, or do I have to write my own?
