I am going to be using a safecracker form with zoo-visitor to create membership profiles.

I want to have a field where you choose 1,2,or 3 and if you choose 1 the next field gives you options in a multi select list for 1a if you choose 2, you choose from a list 2a and so on.

Is there anything built in I could use or does it require some custom ajax or is a multi page form the best option?

There isn't anything built in, but not too long ago John Henry Donovan did a little write-up on implementing something similar with jquery plugins that might help you.

  • You can do just about anything with jQuery so starting there is a very good idea. – Anna_MediaGirl Feb 26 '13 at 17:33
  • That is a great example. Only issue I am having it is based on a selection process: Select Category > Display entries from that category. I need Select Category > Display a second List of Categories. something like a list of countries > and then a list of states in that country. – Peter Eastwood Mar 4 '13 at 16:30
