Hi all,


I need to create a News & press page on a client's website, so far, nothing too complex, I know... But, they would like a visitor to be able to filter the press articles and so on by products. So let's say, a visitor wishes to view all articles (default view) can do so, but if they want to see only all articles related to Product A or Product B, they could do so with a drop down list.

Now, I would be interested with something fairly easy to implement without the need of running ASP or CGI in the background. Is this possible? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you :)

hi,

here's a link to the old WA script for double combo boxes:

Thanks for your reply, but this is not what I am after. This merely complete the task and would require several pages to achieve, so managing the press and news area would be somehow complicated and a burden, since the press is a quite dynamic area of the site.


Thanks anyway.

If you want that kind of functionality and little maintenance as well, it's hard to avoid server-side scripting and a database system.

Can you give me some indication or examples? For instance, I use www.solidscripts.com for all the email related function. Is there somewhere where I could use the same kind of scripts? My guess is no, so what can I do? :confused:

Thanks for your help
