    How to make Ad Title not Free Text? (Want to make Title Drop Down Selection)

    Hi,

    Just purchased the business platform and rather disappointed at the lack of capability and customisation.

    I wanted to create an automotive classifieds that was clean and professional looking but most of the features I want and need are not available to me.

    I wanted to set the website up into Categories.

    eg.

    VEHICLES->
    Cars-
    Trucks-
    Off Road-


    But also have the ability to Search by Make, Model, Year, etc.

    When creating an ad the title is free text which allows users to type in make, model, year, etc. in their own fashion with spelling errors and in different formats.

    I have created custom form layouts and custom fields with drop down boxes for each category.

    eg.

    Make: (then a drop down menu of all makes of vehicles in that catrgory. eg. for Cars. Toyota, Mazda, Chev, Ford, etc.)

    Model: Free text for model (Would prefer to have drop down menus per make. eg. if Make: Ford was selected, then Model: F150, F250, etc.)

    Year: Drop Down Selection 1900-2010

    I would like these three things to make up the ad title.

    So ad Appears as...

    "2010 FORD F150"

    Instead of the messy free text options which could be entered in any fashion. eg.

    2010 Ford f150

    Ford F150 2010

    FORD f150 '10 Model

    Red Ford F150 Truck 2010

    etc.


    Is this even possible to do?


    How can I create a proper search box to then search by Make, Model, etc.

    I feel this platform is way to basic for what I require...

    All help and info appreciated.
