[resolved] Contact Form 7 Drop down menu failure (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I find Contact Form 7 to be a fantastic, well-crafted and time-saving plugin. I have had only one problem with it and I'm betting it's my fault and not the plugin's but I don't know how to solve it.

    Please go here: http://itt-s.com/dev/request-info-2/ and the down to the text "We'd love to hear what courses you are interested in, please let us know below:
    Operating Systems"

    My drop down menus never work with CF7 and I don't know how to fix it. All of them display this way where I am able to see the entire contents of the dropdown list before user activation. Any suggestions? It is the same in IE8+, FF3+ and Chrome8+

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. -c-

    See the demo on this page:

    There are two types of drop down menu, one choice and multiple choices. You are using multiple type, so you see all of the options. Maybe you wish one choice menu, if so, just remove the 'multiple' option from the [select] tag.

    THank yo so much. I knew it was my fault and thought that I had covered the "Docs" pretty thoroughly, oh well. Thanks again for your time.

    PS> I have, and will continue to contribute to this plugin.

    All the best. -c-

    Stumped again.

    I followed your directions and now my menus look great but I cannot select multiple items anymore!

    Is there a way to set this up so that my users can make MULTIPLE selections from pulldwown menus but not have to look at the whole menu and all the space it takes up? I'm thinking that the whole reason of a pullout menu is to save space in your form layout, right?

    I read through the page mentioned above and did not see how to implement a collapsed pulldown menu that allows multiple choice selection.

    Thanks again for your time. -c-

    No. It's impossible. HTML spec doesn't cover such kind of menu.
