I need a dropdown list with nearly 500(!) items – in one dropdown 🙁
If I filled a custom dropdown, after about 100 items and saving the list the dropdown-field is no longer existing in the form (backenend and frontend).
What can I do to integrate such big dropdown-element?
OK, is it possible to use 500 categories in a dropdown-category-list inside a form or is there also a limit of 100?
And how can I include a hidden field for a separate category without deleting the values of a selected category in a dropdown-list? I want to use the same category list in two forms and need the separate categories as a filter for several posts.
For example: Form 1 = Adding car-ads for sale, form 2 = adding private car-fotos (cars not for sale). For both forms I need the 500 manufacturer (the same categories in a drowdown-list) and a separate hidden category, and than I will use a post to publish the car-sales-infos with, in addition, the private car-fotos of the same manufacturer and the other way around.
When I use in a form a category-dropdown-list and a hidden field with ‘category' and the category-id, the form submitted only the category of the hidden field.
