Add-On Type(s)



Makes it possible to create a select dropdown or multi-select containing data from a remote database / table.

Remote Query Dropdown Select makes it possible to create a select dropdown or multi-select containing data from a remote database / table.

- Install the fieldtype.
- Create custom field.
- Enter the host-details from the remote (or local) database, incl. hostname, username, password and database.
- Enter the required SQL Query (for example: SELECT entry_id, title FROM exp_channel_titles WHERE channel_id = 1)

Dropdown will be populated by the returned rows from the remote database formatted as entered in the settings “Option Value Field” and “Option Text Field”.

* Remote database access can be restricted by the hosting party. This fieldtype also works for local databases and even the same database as the current EE installation (settings still required).
