The dropdown element presents the content manager with a list of options to choose from.

This element is also available for forms, enabling website users to also have a dropdown list of options.

Adding a dropdown

When adding a dropdown to a section or form, you should first specify a name.

After you have done that, you need to specify the options semicolon (;) separated.

Example: red;blue;yellow;purple, this creates a dropdown with four options (red, blue, yellow, purple).
