Dropdown Selections disappear in edit mode

Nov 17, 2014 at 4:16 PM
Hi Marc - We have a situation with the $().SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns I am hoping you can help with.

We have a publishing site that has a custom page layout. The page layout allows the user to select the department, division, and section.

Once the user saves the information, then tried to go back into edit mode, the division and sections are disappearing from the drop downs.

I am hoping you can help us work towards a solution that will rectify this.

I should also note that this is only happening to a select group of people and not everyone.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

It appears that when a user selects page, then edit, the dropdown disappears, however if they select [eidt this page], the information stays in place. Thought you would like to know this.

The function is meant to be used on a default list form. If you're using it in some other context, then it may not work. You'll need to do some debugging to see where the issue is occurring.

Since it is only happening to some people, it sounds like a permissions thing?
