Tiffany Brown shares a quick function she whipped up to create dropdown menus from the contents of a newline separated text file (or files).
I developed this PHP function for a project I'm working on. I'm posting it here in case I need it again, or in case you find it handy.
The function turns each line into an option tag making defining custom menus based on the contents of dynamically-given text files easy.
This could also be easily adapted to create navigations menus at the top of your pages with a few modifications to the HTML tags being used and some CSS to change the look of the list.
