Specify what my dropdown says


Recommended Posts

I have a dropdown as part of the Search and Dropdown contribution, but I cannot figure out where to EDIT or ADD the text "Select Studio" so it will appear as the default inside the dropdown box...any ideas? Here's the code:


//begin cut

// Display a drop-down

   $select_box = '<select name="manufacturers_id" onChange="this.form.submit();" size="' . MAX_MANUFACTURERS_LIST . '" style="width: 100%">';


     $select_box .= '<option value="">' . PULL_DOWN_DEFAULT . '</option>';


   while ($manufacturers_values = tep_db_fetch_array($manufacturers_query)) {

     $select_box .= '<option value="' . $manufacturers_values['manufacturers_id'] . '"';

     if ($HTTP_GET_VARS['manufacturers_id'] == $manufacturers_values['manufacturers_id']) $select_box .= ' SELECTED';

     $select_box .= '>' . substr($manufacturers_values['manufacturers_name'], 0, MAX_DISPLAY_MANUFACTURER_NAME_LEN) . '</option>';


   $select_box .= "</select>";

   $select_box .= tep_hide_session_id();

   $info_box_contents = array();

   $info_box_contents[] = array('form'  => '<form name="manufacturers" method="get" action="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, '', 'NONSSL', false) . '">',

                                'align' => 'left',

                                'text'  => $select_box);


 new infoBox($info_box_contents);

I'm not familiar with the contribution. But logically thinking, that would be in the language file, either english.php or the specific page language file.




Good Luck.

Does it pull the categories or the manufacturers info for the dropdown?


You can set what you can both in languages/english.php, I think. The titles of the boxes are all defined in one of the language files.
