View Full Version : work sorter using dropdowns

03-15-2005, 11:02 AM
I want to create something similar to the way http://www.preloaded.com/whatwedo.php ('http://www.preloaded.com/whatwedo.php') have designed their case studies page.

How is it done? Can someone point me in the direction of some code as I'm no expert?!

I've coded this together so far am I a million miles away?

Thanks for your help.

Er - in a word - yes - you're a long way off I think.

I may be wrong - but it looks like their website is using dynamic PHP webpages to interact with a MySQL database.

I think to emulate what they have done you're going to have to do alot of reading and learning....

Can't really offer much more than that as I'm only recently starting to become blaise with PHP and databases myself.

haha :D cool avatar by the way

mrdogcat - shady is to the point, you need a server-side solution for this. Fortunately, DW can do it, unfortunately it's a pretty darn steep learning curve to do it.
I wish we had some tutorials here for that, but I think you're best of googling.

Yeah - some tutorials would be nice - but I guess they'd end up being the size of a small book!

agreed that the problem is best solved using a server side solution, but its possible to do it using javascript and css. how?

think cookies (in javascript to maintain state) and display property (in css to show hide sections).

if you are willing to pay someone a serverside solution / javascript solution will not cost you more than a 100 bucks
