I have a database lookup field that has several values. I don't want a dropdown search, instead, I need it to be a simple search (users typing into it).

Secondly, there are countries, continents and towns. I need for example, if Europe is selected, only european countries to be shown. When a country is selected, only that country's towns to be shown.

Also, I couldn't search by tags.

Please advise, thanks.

Hi George,

For your first question. It's possible to use a text search and link different F2C fields to it. The only thing I don't know is if you can select the database lookup field as input for the text search... But easy enough for you to check out.

Second. Having a dependent dropdown (like here: is a field type we currently don't support. Julien is working on refactoring Form2Content which also involves getting true plugin based field types. This will allow for other to more easily create field types like the one you are talking about.

Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so ;)

Hi George,

There is a trick you can use to search with freetext in a dropdown.
Please see this plug-in:
This plug-in can transform your regular dropdown into a dropdown with freetext search capabilities.
