Ok I am creating some weird code, some may say I am nuts. But here goes.
The ConceptI have a ul / li list of items, that when clicked open respective pages. However I am creating a category page, that I want users to be able to refine their criteria on the fly.
Check this image ( very basic )
How I want it to work
My URL structure is like this. www.domain.com/pears/all/which can be drilled down to…
What I want to do is, on page load. Show the ul li list of items, that they can select, with a select option / dropdown select box on the right, which is unusable until they make a selection.
When they make their selection, lets say pears the dropdown box becomes usable. With the options shown in the drop down image.
So the UX is like:
User Clicks Pears
Dropdown box, propagates with the options for PEARS ( drilldown ) the format is the same for every item.
URL path so far is www.domain.com/pears/
User then clicks on say USA
URL path is www.domain.com/pears/usa/ which onclick takes user to that page.
Any suggestions or anyone fancy attempting this. Prefer PHP with a smidgen of JS where required.
To add, would prefer that the select option / dropdown portion is actually hidden until user makes a selection from the LIST.
Yeah that is kind of it. The issue is, I can send you the url privately so you can see what I am trying to achieve. But the first selection needs to be a ul li list to propagate the select drop down ( drill ) , which then user can submit etc..
Cheers for that, we have used something similar ( dynamic selects ) on another site of ours, but I havent been able to nail it from a ul li list.
I will email you ( via your profile ) the site link.
ust back, awesome thankyou I owe you one, will have a bash at your logo later to say thanks
