    Match user input to predefined list to determine next page

    I am trying to write a basic code to ask a user to input his zip code that will then be checked against a list of predefined zip codes. if input is matching user goes to one url if not matching goes to another.

    any help would be great

    Try this:-

    <select id = "zipcodes" onchange = "checkzip()">
    <option value = 0> Select your zip code</option>
    <option value = 12345>12345</option>
    <option value = 23456>23456</option>
    <option value = 34567>34567</option>
    <option value = "Other">Another zip code</option>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function checkzip() {
    var z = document.getElementById("zipcodes").value;
    if (z == 0) {
    return false;  // do nothing
    if (z == "Other") {
    window.location.href = "http://www.google.com"  // replace by the actual url
    else {
    window.location.href = "http://javascriptkit.com"  // replace by the actual url
