Select dropdown menus are super common and they serve a real purpose. If you need to offer a set of options where the user should only pick one, it’s easiest to use a select menu.
But with Harvest’s Chosen you can quickly get these features added into your layout without a hitch. This plugin supports a custom search filter where the user can type letters and automatically filter the results.
This is super handy for lengthy select forms like country pickers. With well over 100 countries in the world it’s pretty nice to have a searchable select menu.
And the Chosen plugin has options for multi-select along with a “no results” display for search. It’s quite possibly the most detailed select menu plugin out there.
