I want to create a dropdown list in a template for a user to fill out.
This article from ancient times mentions, that Confluence is able to do this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF42/Form+Field+Markup+for+Templates
In the current template editor I am not able to create a list or find documentation on how to do this. $VAR is working, but creates only a text field.
=> How do I create dropdowns (or radios or other specific fields) without using add-ons?
while editing the template, click on the variable $VAR and you should get a pop-up with three different options, "Text", "Multiline Text", and "List". Choose "List" and type the options that you want to have for the dropdown list separated by commas. For example, you could write:
option 1,option 2,option 3
and then once you save you should have a dropdown list in your template where you can choose between option 1, option 2, and option 3.
if i implement it like this, i can select the dropdown list value when creating the site.
When the page has been created, no dropdown list exists.
