Select Fields in Category
SQL 2.0.3

Is it possible to have drop down select fields on the home page for the Categories and subcats that visitors can choose from? I have about 10 major categories and 30 subcats under each. I would like to have a selct box for the Category and a select box for the subcats so that the vistor could choose the "Region" and the "Specialty" on the home page. They would then go directly to the link.

This is something I suggested awhile back -- or is a logical extension of what I suggested for the add pages.

This would require the use of the java/javascript type boxes from the browser, where you select the parent category in the left-most box, and then the sub cats for that category would appear in the next most right box, etc. 3-levels seems to be all the depth that the average screen could hold, but it could be made to use the _SAME_ box, with two buttons underneath "up 1" and "go", so that you pick the category in that box, click [go] and you are presented with the subcategories in that category, etc, til you get to the links, when the "leaf-node" page is displayed.

I would love to have this -- I would love to do this. But I don't have the time to learn the javascript -- and there are plenty of people out there who do know javascript and could do this as a contribution. It's not hard... most of the code is in the browser-tree, and it would need to be modified to use a list/slection box.

Maybe whomever did the JS for Alex/GT could do this.

This would be a widely appreciated, well recieved mod!!
