    For example let's say I have an automotive site and I have a 'Make' dropdown with "BMW, Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, etc" and if select "Ford" I want another 'Model' dropdown to only display only Ford models like 'Focus, Mustang, F150, etc."

    Is this a good use case for Query Args? I would appreciate a link or two on how to use Query Args too.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jeremy,

    The post or taxonomy field does not support getting the value from a field as an argument on live click. You need to create a custom field type and add some JavaScript code to do that.

    Can I make this work if I use the "Hierarchical [X] Whether the post type is hierarchical." checkbox and make the Model CPT a child of the Make CPT or some combination thereof?

    There's also the "Set as parent" option in the Field group. Maybe that in combination with the above might work?

    Hi,

    Yes, you can create a CPT make with some parent posts BMW, Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford and child posts. Then use the field post with the field type select_tree or checkbox_tree. Screenshot https://share.getcloudapp.com/rRuWLe2e

    The setting parent or "Set as parent" in the builder is to set the selected post in the box as the parent of the current edited post.
