Creating an "Other" radio button w/ textfield
I need to create a radio button called "other" that allows the user to add a new option -detailed tutorial needed-

I need to create a radio button called "other" that allows the user to add a new option using cforms14.5 and worpress 3.4.1. This is the case:

Q. Your favourite colour is..

  • ( ) red
  • ( ) blue
  • ( ) other [specify]

I have read in the forum that this can be made by creating dynamic forms -but i have no idea how to do it and the help section is quite difficult for a newbie -. Does anyone knows about a step-by-step tutorial??

Thanks in advance!

I've just found how to solve it…The code -based on "" for showing-up the textfield is the following:


$(document).ready(function() {
  $.viewMap = {
    '0' : $([]),
    'OTRO' : $('#id_of_the_textfied'),
$.each($.viewMap, function() { this.hide(); });
  $('#id_of_the_radiobutton_other').change(function() {
    $.each($.viewMap, function() { this.hide(); });

Now i'm trying to create a function that checks that if "other" is checked and "textarea" is empty returns an "pop-up error message" and if "other" is not checked and textarea is not empty returns other "pop-up error message".

Im beginning w/ my_cforms_action() but i think i'm not in the right direction. Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.
