Two Dimensional Select v1.0

By Byrne Reese
Posted January 29, 2010, in Custom Fields.

Details

This plugin provides a new custom field type to Movable Type Pro users. This new field type, called a "two dimensional select" allows one to have a pull down menu, which when a selection is made, reveals a second pull down menu to further narrow down the user's choice. This is perfect for managing LARGE pull down menus for which the menu's content is easily categorized, e.g. states within regions, cities within states, etc.

Usage

  1. Create a new Custom Field.

  2. Select "Drop Down Menu (2-Dimensional)" as the field's type.

  3. In the Options text area that appears enter in data according to the following structure:

     { 
       "California" => [ "LA","San Francisco","San Diego" ],
       "Texas" => [ "Dallas","Houston","Austin" ],
       "Lousiana" => [ "New Orleans","Sliddel","Baton Rougue" ],
     }
    

    For those familiar with Perl, you will recognize this is a simple hash.

    Syntax is important here, so pay attention to placement of commas, and make sure all square and curly brackets are opened and closed properly.

The main segment would be an unordered rundown of players and the second segment would be the individual player data, that would change when a player name is clicked. Essay Writing Service | Essay Star would prefer not to page to reload, but instead simply stack all player data and progressively change when a name is clicked.

The fundamental portion would be an unordered once-over of players and the second fragment would be the individual player information that would change when a player name is clicked. Essay help UK would incline toward not to page to reload, but rather essentially stack all player information and continuously change when a name is clicked.
