Vehicle year make model listing (5 posts)

    I'm trying to figure out how to create an online form where users can log into the back-end and enter in their car details. I've tried some of the plugins out there like ninja forms and gravity but they don't seem to do fully what I need. I can get the form listing the year make and model but the problem is that not all make and models were created for a given year and I can't see to get that portion of it setup. Example: A Honda s2000 was only made during 1999-2009 so when select 1990 from the drop down and select Honda, the S2000 model should not show up. Along with this, I'd like to be able to include the engine setups and other parameters specific to that car. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    You'll need to get that whole list from somewhere. I don't know where you are, but where I am that sort of data is (very) expensive to licence unless you go collect and update it all yourself.

    What you're asking is possible, but will take a bit of work. There's no pre-built solution out there as it's all a whole heap of work to keep up something like that.

    How to do it depends on a whole lot of factors including your database set up, how the data is actually stored, how it's being accessed and used and how the page is meant to react on certain events. There's not much more that I can say apart from telling you to look at things like AJAX and jQuery to see what they can do as far as loading the data into the various areas when it's required.

    I appreciate your feedback catacaustic. Do you know anyone who is willing to take on a project like that for payment?
