Client Description

The task was to implement a dynamic two-step category filter for a WordPress site. The primary requirement was that the selection of the top-level categories in list 1 would dynamically populate list 2 with the corresponding sub-categories. The entire process had to be seamless without a page refresh, making use of either JavaScript or AJAX. Once a sub-category was selected, a 'next' button would redirect the user to a new page displaying the selected category's content. The project had to be executed without any plug-ins and required pure functionality without any specific styling. The children categories would remain hidden until a parent category was chosen.

My Feedback

James had a clear vision of what he wanted for his WordPress site—a custom multi-step category filter. Although I had experience building this using JavaScript, adapting it for WordPress posed a challenge. However, with James' collaborative approach and understanding, we were able to find an effective solution. He was patient and even suggested ideas to enhance the filter's functionality. Completing this project as envisioned was a rewarding experience, and I am thankful to James for his trust and support. Looking forward to future collaborations!
