I am looking for a Joomla Extension that allows me to create a drop-down search function

Hi

I need a Joomla extension that can allow for a visitor to select a category for e.g. City, then it must open another drop down of the cities, and then it must display a list of all the selections available in the city. here is an example: http://www.placidway.com/ on the left there is a search section titled: "Find Medical Procedures". One search takes you to another search until you narrow down the selection. If nothing is available, any suggestions as to how to go about something like this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Duzbin.

Hi

I need a drop down which gives an option to select a city, then it must bring up a list of installers/distributors in that city?

hope this makes sense to you?

Go for zoo. You can create app from backend and modify according to your need.

http://www.yootheme.com/zoo/

It has already got Business directory App.

which will be very useful for implementing your data and managing it.

Now with your question regarding dropdown search.

You canuse zoofilter module for zoo

I would personally follow 1 of 2 options.

1) Learn how to do this yourself by using some php and html.

Do you happen to know any PHP?  If so, get a hold of Jumi...a powerful component that will allow you to embed php and javascript files into Joomla.

2) Hire someone to do this for you.

I've many years of experience in developing solutions like this for clients.  There are no components available that cover what you are needing, but if you know how to code it, then that's the route I would take, if not...then you might need to hire someone.

I do have a possible javascript solution, just thought it might be easier with a Joomla plug in (getting lazier with technology :)  - will give it a crack, will also def check out zoo as mentioned above.

Thanks.
