I would like to add my support to existing requests for support of Multiple Categories – via OR logic rather than AND logic as it is at present. ( https://www.itthinx.com/topic/multiple-categories/, https://www.itthinx.com/topic/restricting-multiple-categories/, https://www.itthinx.com/topic/woocommerce-issues-with-multiple-categories-groups/ – and others).
I note that you have agreed this should become a feature – is there any progress/date yet, please?
I also note on other threads that George has suggested that an AND type logic would produce a flaw in the behavior and not reflect a real use case. I would disagree with that analysis. In our applications, as in many others (probably most use cases I would suggest), one would wish to allow say ‘Silver’ and ‘Gold’ members access to the same/common categories. This is not possible currently (with AND logic) and requires OR logic. Currently, I believe normal page/post assignment to groups works with OR – categories need to work in the same way.
I agree, there are some potential issues with conflicting access permissions being granted via the page/post as opposed to those being granted under the page/posts category – but that dichotomy exists in any case, and simply requires the administrator to enforce/ensure consistency manually.
I have taken a look at implementing OR logic myself – but it is not quite so straightforward 😉
Any date possible guys?
Very many thanks
