You'll need to explain how you have created these drop down lists - Confluence doesn't really have them off-the-shelf, you have probably used an addon to do it. If you're not sure if it's an addon, then what are the macro names you've used?
Thanks for responding, I'm sorry that was too vague of a question. I just created a list (value,value,value) and the variable name is: $industry
It's a homemade form created via confluence without additional plug-ins. 1st issue is the drop down lists values need to be selected before any other part of the form can be completed. 2nd issue is once the form is submitted, it's not letting me go back in to change the drop down value.
Most of it was not vague at all, I think most of what you've said tells us the behaviour and what's wrong with it. But I'm afraid I still don't understand how you have created drop-down lists. Confluence does not have them - if you type (value,value,value) into a page, you get (value,value,value) out. It does not have "variables". It doesn't really have "Forms" either. I do not understand where these are coming from.
OK, I'm sorry - i'm new to jira/confluence. I think the terms I'm using are my own and not Atlassian :). SO.... on our confluence space, we've created pages. within that page we've made it a form. We used the page template wizard and the insert drop down here:
Ahh, ok, that makes sense. The "drop downs" kick in on the page creation - you're using templates/blueprints to prompt the users for information which is then used to create the body of the page.
Now, these "drop downs" are not body content, they only exist in the templates. Once a page is created, then the data in them becomes text. There's no drop-downs in the body content, if you want to update these items, you click "edit" to edit the whole page, and then change the text on the page.
