  • If i use this country drop down HTML, how can i add a link per country, so if i chose Afganistan for example, it takes me to a specific link? Where do i add that link and which code do i need?

    Thanks,

    • Change the select to something like:

      Then just before the tag write this:

      function Redirect(value) {
      window.location.assign(value);
      }

    • you have to use the anchor tag to link the name individually

  • Seems like I can’t split my codeblocks up. So my final attempt:

    Change the select to have a name attribute, like “countryList”. Then add the onChange attribute and enter something like “Redirect(this.value);”, that name is going to be the function you’re going to write just before the end body tag.

    the code: (and remember to surround it with script tags)


    function Redirect(value) {
    window.location.assign(value);
    }
