Dropdown multisite selector

Description

Do you need a way to give your visitors the option to navigate easily from your site other sites (multisite)?
This plugin will give you the option to configure a small select/dropdown field with fully configurable options and values (urls).

You can choose by three options:

  • manually configure the number of the options from the dropdown element – pick up a name of your option and the relevant url where the user will be redirected after choosing it;

  • get a automatically list of all sites from WordPress Multisite network – this one picks the names of all your sites that are in the multisite network and adds them to the select element;

  • get the same list as previous one but only with the site where the current logged in user is registered;

You can manage:

  • Your label for the name of the select option or leave it without label
  • Your first select option (‘Select branch’, ‘Select country’, ‘Choose Side’)
  • Sorting of your custom list (alphabetic sorting + reverse sorting (your last entries will become first in the dropdown))

Once you have saved your settings you can see the result using this shortcode [dms] or use the widget.

Shortcodes

[dms] – Using this shortcode will generate the same dropdown as the one you have configured in the admin settings panel.

[dms_manual name=”” placeholder=”” target=”” options=””] – Use this one your own dropdown that has nothing to do with the settings you have set. The arguments of this shortcode are:
* name – the label of the select option (leave empty for no label)
* placeholder – the first option that is showen in the select menu (like: “– Select –“)
* target – could be “default” or “blank”. This is the target of the link – “blank” is to be open in new window
* options – name-link pairs, should be placed as : “name1|url1, name2|url2, name3|url3”

An example:
[dms_manual name=”Label” placeholder=”–Select–” target=”blank” options=”Trusted search engine|http://duckduckgo.com, Tracking search engine|http://google.bg”]

If you would more functionality, please contact me to check if I can implemente it. Also thanks to everyone giving me hints how to improve this plug-in.

Reviews

Thank you

No too much to say – Works exactly as required
PERFECT for my needs.

Excellent

It would be cool if you could have a style-free version so the dropdown inherits styles from its container. I achieved it with Custom CSS though, no biggie. Great plugin! 🙂

Alphabetise option

Love this plugin, I’ve been searching for something like this for around two years.

Will there be an option to arrange each link in alphabetical order for future updates, as I need to show 40+ targets on the the menu?
