Add-On Type(s)



This is a simple, lightweight and easy to use plugin to build an existing dropdown field in front-end by simple 2-3 lines of code. When you have a select field in any field group, it is not easy to call that in front-end for some other form. If you use channel form, you won't need this plugin. The channel form itself provides option to call the field of a group. But when you want to use a select box to some other form, i.e. a select dropdown of any channel needs to be provided to end user for any enquiry form or any other kind of form, you can use this plugin.

You just need to pass the name of the dropdown field that you want to show on the front-end form. Below is the tag that helps you to remove the burden of writing the SQL for fetching the dropdown options from the database itself.

<select name=“freeform_field”>
{exp:select_dropdown:show_values field_name=”“}
