I have a drop down menu using the select element of terms from various custom taxonomies - The drop down list are dynamically generated using this code. here is an example of one of them :
<div class="hp-dd-menu"> <!-- Machine Make Drop Down -->
I am noticing that the first option in the select drop down menu is also appearing so it looks as though the word appears two times in a row... HEre is a dev ink to the site I am working on to preview what I am describing https://imsparts.wpengine.com/
(See red drop down menus about halfway down on the home page)
So I am wondering if there was any way I could remove the first option when the dropdown menu is triggered somehow?
