Category, subcategory problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to make a classified ad. I made a table for the main category and for the sub category. When the user will select from the main category, I'd like to display just those in the subcategory. I really tried but I can't solve it yet.

 

Here's the code.

 

<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
 <select name="select" size="10">
   <?php
do {  
?>
   <option value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['mid']?>"><?php echo $row_Recordset1['mdesc']?></option>
   <?php
} while ($row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1));
 $rows = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
 if($rows > 0) {
     mysql_data_seek($Recordset1, 0);
  $row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
 }
?>
 </select>
 <select name="select2" size="10">
   <?php
do {  
?>
   <option value="<?php echo $row_Recordset2['sid']?>"><?php echo $row_Recordset2['sdesc']?></option>
   <?php
} while ($row_Recordset2 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset2));
 $rows = mysql_num_rows($Recordset2);
 if($rows > 0) {
     mysql_data_seek($Recordset2, 0);
  $row_Recordset2 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset2);
 }
?>
 </select>
</form>

 

 

Is there a better way of doing this? Any site you recommend?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Do you mean that when you select from the main catagory, only the sub categories of the selected main item are displayed. If this is what you mean then you need a multiple cascading menu that dynamically displays the sub-menus when the main value is selected.

There is a very good MX extension available from Phakt that simplifys this menu type creation called MX Widgets

Look here MX Widgets

 

Hope this helps :)
