Multiple Selections (drop down)

I am providing various options to my readers in the form of a drop down menu.  (I could potentially do this as radio buttons).  Most readers will pick more than one option from the selection I am providing.  How can I enable this?  At the moment it seems you only have the ability to select one option from either a list of radio buttons or from a drop down menu. Or am I missing something?

Thanks for your previous answer to my query.

You're right Ian, currently only one selection per drop down is permitted. As a work-around, you could for instance setup multiple check boxes (for a reasonable number of items), ie:

  1. Choose#Item1
  2. #Item2
  3. #Item3
  4. etc.

Would that suffice your requirements?

hallo, es ist schon bisschen später und ich hoffe, ich hab im forum nicht einen eintrag zu meiner frage übersehen:

ich bin sehr begeistert vom wirklich einfach zu handhabenden cforms plugin, komme aber mit den checkbox groups nicht so ganz klar. mit oder ohne eigens brav eingefügter fieldsets bekomme ich in der ansonsten korrekten mail eine fehlerhafte zuordnung, sobald ich gruppiere. bsp:

group A mit 2 checkboxes A1 A2

group B mit 2 checkboxes B1 B2

-> steht in der mail dann zwar jeweils mit den richtigen labels, aber alle der ersten group folgenden items werden der immer ersten group zugeordnet (im bsp wäre dann alles group A zugeordnet). hab ich irgendwas vergessen (close group o.ä.)? sorry, bin heut nicht mehr fit für all das in englisch, danke für einen tip im voraus..

No worries, German is fine, but I'll answer in English since this in fact is a bug ;-)

Two check box groups (with no other field inbetween) will currently be "collapsed" into one. I'll work on a fix for that.

It seems that this Firefox specific, since it seems to work fine on IE.

Possible Workaround: Try disabling Ajax support for this form and see if this works

wow! that’s what i call instant service ;o) thanks a lot, oliver! at least it was not my nightly stupidity and knowing about the missing field inbetween is yet helping until the upgrade will be coming out. THANK YOU.
