Category/Subcategory quick selection with AJAX


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I searched for 3 days now and can't find a solution for my problem...



My catalog is structured like this:







-Sony Ericsson



-Product 1

-Product 2















I need a category quick selection dropdown designed as follows:


Make: [Please select... ]

Model: [Please select... ] [GO]


The first Dropdown should contain all subcategories under the main category "Make", the second dropdown should be grayed out.

As soon as a customer has selected a Make in the first dropdown, the second should become active and be populated with the selected subcategory's subcategories (Models).

After a Model is selected, the GO button should be activated and pressing it should display the selected subcategory.


If possible this would be nice with AJAX to avoid reloading the page everytime something is selected.


As I said, I searched for three days now and can't find anything close.


Please, your help is really appreciated!


Thanks a lot in advance. Best regards!

What you need is called a chained select menu. Google for it, and you will find many links with script you can adapt easily to let it do the job.

Some usable links:
