Open on load does open all categories

    The filter bar only opens to the Parent Category level. The default open state should be all open. It is confusing to have checkboxes on the parent categories, especially if they are not open. Is there a way to have the categories fully open on load?

    Hi Michael!

    Thanks for getting in touch with us. Let me try to help you with this topic.

    The Filters Default State option in the Filter settings (Events > Settings > Filter tab) will only define the state of the filter bar and not each filter.

    Unfortunately, there is no built-in option to make the categories open by default. However, you can choose a different type of filter for the Categories like Dropdown or Multi-Select if you think that is a better styling for your needs.

    Another option would be to make a customization that could open the filters once they are load, which of course would require some custom coding.

    I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any follow up questions and I’ll be happy to help.
