    Good afternoon, I think a lot of people come in handy.
    If you need to block the selection of the model, until the brand is selected. do the following:

    in file /themes/motors/assets/js/app-ajax.js

    in the beginning it is necessary to add, after
    (function($) {
    "use strict";
    this is the code

    function SearchBox (form) {
    this.form = form;
    this.listing = $('body').hasClass('stm-template-listing');

    SearchBox.prototype.init = function () {
    var timer, self = this;
    $('select:not(.hide)', this.form).select2().on('change', function () {
    if (timer) {

    timer = setTimeout($.proxy(self.performAjax, self), 300);
    $("select[name='serie']").prop( "disabled", true );

    My listings are currently set like: Make > Model > Sub-Model. For example Honda (slug: honda)> Civic (slug: civic)> Civic Hybrid(slug: civic-hybrid). When the listings are updated via WP All Import, the sub model is recreated as Civic Hybrid(slug: civic-hybrid-2). Is there a way to avoid duplicating the models when they use a Parent model?

    The theme doesn't support such relationship hierarchy by default. In other words, your Model category is already child for Make category, therefore, it can't be a parent for other categories.

    Ok, I guess I got confused by the hierarchy section in 'Edit Model'. In the pic below I assigned the Model 3-Series to the parent term, 3 Series (no '-' dash).

    The parent category is BMW:

    Should the Parent Term section just be ignored?

    Hi Jason,

    Please ignore my previous reply :)

    Should the Parent Term section just be ignored?

    Sure, you can ignore it and leave this option as empty.

    This a standard WordPress category option and it doesn't work for listing categories. We will disable this section in our coming update.

    Would it be possible to integrate it one day? I can seen this as being helpful to people using the classified layout because different dealers use different taxonomies (accord sdn vs accord sedan). It would help to simplify and clean up the search.

    I have no idea how difficult it would be to's just a thought.

    A temp fix is to rewrite the model on import. In case anyone else needs it, I used this php code from github and it works perfectly:
