I have this Hierarchical taxonomy structure


In content type, I have a taxonomy term reference to this vocabulary using Hierarchical List provided by Hierarchical Select Module. When I want to add the content, I get the default Select Option as:

iPhone List

(Note the Update Button Above). When I hit Update then only I get child terms of iPhone

Now, if I want to select Nokia instead of Apple

Nokia Phone List

I don't get that Update Button, or I cannot change it until I refresh the page.

Is there any way the Child list (list in hierarchy) would load without hitting Update and change whenever I change the Parent list?

In short : I want to get rid of Update Button and load the Hierarchy List automatically when I change the value in the list.

  • If I select Apple, the list in the Apple would show.
  • If I select Nokia then Phones under Nokia would show without having to hit Update or Refresh the Page.
  • Instead use simple Hierarchical Select Module. drupal.org/project/shs

Instead use Simple hierarchical select module, It actually load child terms without button.

enter image description here

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.
