[resolved] AJAX: Visitor Selects Category. How to Get Widgets Updated w/Selected Cat (3 posts)

    Good Evening,

    I am interested in finding out if by having a site visitor select from a drop-down list of categories, widgets with posts tagged by that category can be populated.

    Is this possible through AJAX? I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding how to make the connection between the category selection and getting the Widgets set up so that it displays the posts tagged by that selected Category.

    Thanks,
    Catharine

    I've provided a link to a wireframe of how I'd like this to work: http://cl.ly/image/0B3e1L1A1A2F . Hopefully this provides better context of the guidance I am seeking.

    Basically the Visitor Selects a Category (e.g., "Marathon") from a top drop down list.

    The selected Categories are updated in the three widgets.

    Any pointers / advice / naysayers welcome.

    Thanks,
    Catharine

    Very excited to have found the Cat + Tag plugin. I've posted the question there, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/category-filter-at-top-with-selected-category-pages-updating-in-widgets?replies=1#post-3548554
