Chosen for WordPress


This plugin implements the Chosen jQuery Plugin for WordPress.

Chosen makes long, unwieldy select boxes much more user-friendly.

This plugin applies Chosen to any select box in your post and page content. The relevant Javascript & CSS files are only loaded if the post in question includes a select box or a [contact-form] shortcode.

The Grunion Contact Form & Contact Form 7 plugins both use a the [contact-form] shortcode.

If you need to force the Chosen script & styles to load on a page, simply include [chosen] within the page.
