Dynamic Dropdown lists for Categories, Sub-Categories, Posts!

  • Greetings people!

    I’m using WordPress 3.5 as CMS to develop my personal website.

    The reason I’m writting, is that I need a way to implement a code or plugin to allow users to navigate through posts using dependent(chained) dropdown lists.

    In other words I would like 3 dropdown menus to be dynamically populated based on the selection chosen in the previous dropdown lists.

    This would consist of:

    Dropdown 1: Category *
    Dropdown 2: Sub- Category *
    Dropdown 3: List of posts in Sub-Category *

    *Dropdown 1 would be pre populated with categories.
    *Dropdown 2 would list the sub categories of menu 1 based on the user selection.
    *Dropdown 3 would list the posts in the sub category chosen in menu 2.

    To help you understand further, in my website I have the Category “TV Series” which has as sub-categories(child) other series, like “Dexter”, “CSI:Miami” etc.
    Series also have other sub-categories(child) the number of seasons, like “Season 1” “Season 2” “Season N”. Each season contains the appropriate posts.

    The Hierarchy is like this:

    Tv Series

    -Dexter
    –Season 1
    –Season 2
    –Season n

    -CSI:Miami
    –Season 1
    –Season 2
    –Season n

    So for example the dynamic dropdowns I would like to use are the following:

    Dropdown 1: Select TV Show (Category)
    Dropdown 2: Select Season (sub-category)
    Dropdown 3: Select Episode (posts)

    I would really appreciate if you could help me with the matter as I was searching the web for the past few days without any results.

    Thanks in advance.
