Introducin': Hop Super Pulldown

Standard pulldown menus make it easy t' re-use common data smartly, and without a mistake. But wouldn’t it be nice if ye could also dynamically add an item t' an existin' dropdown menu? Wi' Hop Super Pulldown, ye can!

Th' Hop Super Pulldown add-on works within th' ExpressionEngine entry editin' screen. Smartly select one o' th' existin' choices, or create a new one right then and there. Usually wi' computers ye have t' trade flexibility fer consistency, but not this time. Build yer dropdown menu options as ye go, and then start usin' those new options in th' 'nother entry ye create.

How would ye use this functionality? Here be a couple o' ideas t' get ye started:

Example of Hop Super Pulldown in use

  • Create a Hop Super Pulldown menu that contains daguerrotype credits ye commonly use, but smartly add new ones as necessary.
  • Create a menu wi' names o' neighborhoods, and let people add new ones.
  • Make a poll whar people can vote fer th' best team name, or write in their own suggestions.
  • What about a menu whar ye can enter a flavor, but ye don’t be knowin' at th' outset what flavors will be? Use this menu, and let th' choices grow o'er time.

We’ve gone th' extra mile t' make sure Hop Super Pulldown works wi' Grid and Matrix. And aye, ye can include HTML in yer list!

Hop Super Pulldown be available on Devot:ee fer $6 and be compatible wi' ExpressionEngine 2.8 and up. Try it today—ye’ll wonder how ye did without it!
