Re: Predefined Posting Template/Form (10th Jan 08 at 2:24am UTC)
Question about the dropdown box. When I added this:

Code:
 
  1. _fields[_f++] = new Array('select', 'Field Name, ie. "Gender" or "Type"', [], ['All Pages', 'Main Page', 'Mini-Profile', 'Info Center', 'Private Messaging', 'Profile', 'Posting', 'Thread Listing', 'Welcome Table', 'Other'], 'A short description of what the field is for.', true);
 


The options I wanted in the dropdown all went into the text field. All I did was change the names above. Am I missing a step?

Must have gotten caught up with all the variables.

Is there a way to make it so if a user selects an option, for instance "Other" a text field will show up?

I am not prepared to go and modify Ross' code for that! {Sad}

Couldn't you just have the text field showing and have a description saying: "only fill if 'other' is selected"?
