Add-On Type(s)



VZ Picky will display a dropdown list of all the unique values for a particular custom field. Perfect for advanced search forms!

Say you want to offer a select field for a particular custom field on your advanced search page. You could manually enter all the potential values that someone might search for and try to keep that list up-to-date as entries are added and deleted. Or you could use VZ Picky, which will look through all the entries and generate an option tag for each one. You can even have it alphabetize them, and if you sometimes store more than one value in the same field (like tags separated by commas) you can have it split those into separate options.

Please note that when used as a single tag, this plugin does not output the <select> tag itself, only the <option> tags. It’s easier for you to write the <select> in native HTML.
