Newbie needing an resulting option for an option

Recommended Posts

I am a newbie and have done alot of contributions but no real knowledge of coding myself, i just follow directions very well.

My problem is i have a certain product on my website that is going to have options inside of options and i cant seem to find info or a contribtion that lets me set this up. Hope i am explaining this right, so let me give an example.


One product is a DIY Kit

one of the options in this kit is to be able to select up to 4 different flavors of the customers choice, but these flavors are made by 4 different companies, and some of the companies make the same flavors. Also there are a total of over 40 flavors for each company, so a realy long drop down is jsut not reasonable.


What i am looking for is something like:

Choice 1 | Choice 2 | Choice 3 | Choice 4

0 Manuf 1 0 Manuf 2 | 0 Manuf 1 0 Manuf 2 | 0 Manuf 1 0 Manuf 2 | 0 Manuf 1 0 Manuf 2

0 Manuf 3 0 Manuf 4 | 0 Manuf 3 0 Manuf 4 | 0 Manuf 3 0 Manuf 4 | 0 Manuf 3 0 Manuf 4


(Flavor Dropdown List) | (Flavor Dropdown List) | (Flavor Dropdown List) | (FlavorDropdown List)


I hope that makes some sense, basicaly a radio button for the 4 manufactures, that will populate the Flavor Dropdown list with only those manufactures flavors, and 4 total rows of them for the 4 flavor options the customer gets to choose.


If there is a contribution that has this capabality or if someone can point me in the right direction on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You in Advance!!

WOW nobody has any ideas on this, I figured this would be an easy one someone had designed and I just couldn't find it.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

I could realy use some help with this, I now have my second suppliers product that needs to be added and still no close to a solution for this.

Just to clarify in case I made the first post to confusing.


What I have is a DIY kit that lets the customer select a total of 4 flavors from a list. Now the tricky part is that there are 2 different suppliers and some of there flavors are named the same such as apple.

So what I need is something like a radio button for each supplier and then it populates a drop down with only that manufactures flavors for the customer to choose from. Now keep in mind they get a total of 4 choices of flavors and they can be from either manufacturer.


I am guesing some type of if/else statement with a call to the database each time a radio button is selected for manufacturer, but I am a total newbie with this and have no idea where to start.


Any help on this would be greatly appreciated so I dont have to resort to a text box and make the customer type in the manufacturer and flavor for each option.


Thanks In Advance
