Dynamic Populated Dropdown problem

  1. I was planning on using a dynamic populated dropdown to determine how to send out notifications. However in the notifications area I have no options to choose from when I select the dropbox. Is there a way to get a textbox instead of the dropbox so I can manually fill in the options in the notifications area?

  2. Can you provide a little more information on how this is set up now, and what problem you are running into? I can't picture what you're trying to do. It almost sounds like you need to use routing for the notifications, but maybe there is a reason you cannot? Is it because the email address are dynamic? If that's the case, then you might have to resort to setting the notification email address in your functions.php. We can help with that, but please explain in more detail what you're trying to do. Thanks.

  3. I have a custom post type set up called 'Ministry'. This post type is used to populate a dropdown box in a form dynamically, so that each time a new ministry is added the form does not have to be updated. This is necessary since I will not be the one maintaining the site. I need to use that same dropdown box to set up notifications to go to various people depending on what is chosen. Unfortunately, the options are not being populated on the notifications page. Does that help?
