    Hello everyone,

    I am currently making a "news editor" for my site so I can easily update the text on a certain page without having to play with the code. It's very simple at the moment.

    However I have 5 different types of news that need to be edited. Instead of clogging the page with 10 different text fields I want to be able to select which article can be edited.

    So here is what I thought. I make a drop down list (using <option>) and the different selected items output the different articles. This is kind of hard to explain for me so I will show you -

    Basically, when a user selects "News Item #3" I would like to output the form code for that article.

    The problem being is I can't/don't know how to get variables from <option> tags.

    Any help would be great, and sorry if it's confusing.

    You need to put a value in the <option...>. Like this

    HTML Code:
    <select name="menu1" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)" id="drop" name="ItemSelect">
    <option value="News Item #1">News Item #1</option>
    <option value="News Item #2">News Item #2</option>
    <option value="News Item #3">News Item #3</option>
    <option value="News Item #4">News Item #4</option>
    <option value="News Item #5">News Item #5</option>
