  • I don't understand the question... Your web developer builds it, I don't think you can get a template for something like this. It could be done client side (Jquery/Javascript etc) or server side. I think it's server side as the page posts back... – Dave Jul 27 '12 at 9:36

It's a form which by the looks of it uses Javascript (including jQuery) to make it, for example, submit the form when you pick a value from the initial dropdown.

You could examine the HTML and Javascript files on the site to work out exactly how it did it, or ask more detailed questions on stackoverflow.com on how to achieve specific things.


One easy way to achieve that function with a select menu is to show hide div's based on the selected option. Step two is just a list of articles related to the selected drop down.

A jsfiddle demo is here


<Select id="colorselector">
   <option value="red">Red</option>
   <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
   <option value="blue">Blue</option>
<div id="red" class="colors" style="display:none"> red... </div>
<div id="yellow" class="colors" style="display:none"> yellow.. </div>
<div id="blue" class="colors" style="display:none"> blue.. </div>​

The jQuery

$(function() {
        $('#' + $(this).val()).show();
