Very useful plugin for me but found an error in the ft.date_dropdown.php file. In the month array around line 413, November and December have the same number (11) resulting in November not being displayed as an option. Easy fix but developer needs to fix the download.

Appears to do what it says, but loses 1.5 stars for the TON of (unneeded?) crud in the download, apparently from another of this developer’s add-ons - Entry API. Another 0.5 stars lost for bad capitalization and displaying raw fieldnames instead of English labels. tl;dr: Works, but needs polish.

Great add-on. Had some problems getting it to work but Rein fixed the issue and released 1.3 which works perfectly in 1.9 and fills the gap with the rather clumsy date field. Super support too :)

Definitely a promising add-on, but doesn’t appear to work in 2.9 yet.

Nice works, very useful fieldtype, is not always easy to manage date dropdown with EE.
