Does anyone know of a decent plugin that offers an advanced selection option, which gives different options dependent upon the first selection. i.e. if a particular country is chosen, only the cities for that nation would be offered.

RE: Different results offered dependent upon first choice

And what is it you are changing the selection of???

Hello. I need a form to display dropdown options of types of yachts, dependent upon the yacht manufacturer chosen. So if Fairline is chosen, only Phantom, Targa and Squadron are displayed in the next dropdown. If Princess is chosen, only Flybridge and V-Series are displayed in the next dropdown.

By the way:


What you are looking for are called:

'Linked' or 'chained' select boxes

All the ones I can find seem to be focused on categories and in-site search. I'm looking for something that will send a contact form message with targeted information drawn from the 'linked' or 'chained' select boxes . Is there anything like that out there?

RE: Different results offered dependent upon first choice

The principle is exactly the same, it is only the application of it that changes.

That's the issue I'm afraid.

RE: Different results offered dependent upon first choice

Given that you have a specific database to display options from, you are going to have to write the routines to populate the options yourself or finding one that fits your exact need "off the shelf" probably isn't likely to happen.

OR search the WordPress plugin repository
