Include only specific categories (The method that I used because I want users to select their cities)

Here is how it should look.
Open form-listing.php (or any page that has a dropdown would work I assume)
find: <?php wp_dropdown_categories( array(
add: 'include' => 'replace this text with category ID's that you would like to show up',
Just a hint on this one, make sure it is placed directly under <?php wp_dropdown_categories( array(
Hope this helps as a temporary fix until Vantage can increase the robustness of their categories.
