    Posting Ad: 2 Stage Category Selection - nearly working

    Hey everyone,

    I've read on other alternatives for category selection, when you have a lot, but to me nothing beats a 2-stage selector, first choosing the parent, and then getting a list of the children.

    So first the good news:

    I have got two menus showing exactly the correct information, and have changed them so that the second one is the one feeding the ID into the form they sit in, so in theory the next page should load fine.



    What we need to get it working:

    We need to use jQuery to get the second menu to be loaded after the first one is chosen, using the variable "child_of" and the ID number of the parent category.

    Not too tricky, but I've never used jQuery so I wanted to ask the community here to see if anyone can easily glue this together, and create an awesome mod for Classipress! I found info about the jQuery function to use, but got stuck (.load() – jQuery API)

    From 'includes/forms/step1.php' line 40
    Code:
     <form name="mainform" id="mainform" class="form_step" action="" method="post">
    
                        <ol>
    
                            <li>
                                <label><?php _e('Cost Per Listing','appthemes');?>:</label>
                                Always FREE (upgrade to a Featured Listing for just $9.90)<?php //cp_cost_per_listing(); ?> <?php // printf(__('for %s days', 'appthemes'), get_option('cp_prun_period')); ?>
                                <div class="clr"></div>
                                
                                
                            </li>
    
                            <li>
                            <label><?php _e('Select a Category:','appthemes');?></label>
    
                            <?php
    
                            if (get_option('cp_price_scheme') == 'category' && get_option('cp_enable_paypal') == 'yes') {
    
                                cp_dropdown_categories_prices('show_option_none='.__('Select one','appthemes').'&class=dropdownlist&orderby=name&order=ASC&hide_empty=0&hierarchical=1&taxonomy=ad_cat');
    
                            } else {
    
                               //ORIGINALwp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none='.__('Select one','appthemes').'&class=dropdownlist&orderby=name&order=ASC&hide_empty=0&hierarchical=1&taxonomy=ad_cat');
    						   
    						   wp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none='.__('Select one','appthemes').'&class=dropdownlist&orderby=name&order=ASC&hide_empty=0&hierarchical=1&taxonomy=ad_cat&depth=1&name=preselect');
    						 
    						 wp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none='.__('Select one','appthemes').'&class=dropdownlist&orderby=name&order=ASC&hide_empty=0&hierarchical=1&taxonomy=ad_cat&child_of=4');
    
                            }
    
                            ?>

    Really appreciate any help with this, I see it being valuable to a lot of members, but I've taken it as far as I can.

    Cheers,
    Luke
