Drop-down menus and querying other databases (5 posts)

    I have questions about how to accomplish two different things inside wordpress pages. I have no problem doing either of these things in normal web pages with html and php, but I run into problems when I try to do them withing wordpress pages.

    1) I want to create a multidimensional drop down menu so that the user can choose options from several different categories, hit the go button, and proceed to another page that relies on the choices the user just made on the previous page.

    2) The reason I want to do this is because the second page queries a mysql database based on the choices that the user made on the first page. As long as I have runPHP installed, I should be able to do this in the usual way, with mysql_query(), correct? Even though the database I am querying is NOT the wordpress database?

    Thanks.
