How you can display only primary groups inside a dropdown list in wordpress.I must hide subcategories and want to exhibit all primary groups whether it doesn't have posts.Following script I attempted, however it exhibiting all groups(primary and subcategories).

// display categories in drop down list
$args = array('hide_empty'=>0,'depth'=>1); 

help me.

Per the documentation for wp_dropdown_categories, the depth argument is overlooked unless of course 'hierarchical' is placed to true. Add this argument and you ought to obtain the results you're searching for.

$args = array('hide_empty'=>0,'depth'=>1,'hierarchical'=> 1, );

Best Of Luck.
