In creating CTs in Dex I realized that many of my forms I needed a closed vocabulary for a selection widget.
I found some information on creating vocabularies: http://docs.plone.org/external/plone.app.dexterity/docs/advanced/vocabularies.html Seemed deeper than I wanted, or could, go.
but I though there could be a simple "product" that might look like a conflglet in site setup (thus automatically limiting who can add vocabs ).
In my non-programmer mind, I simply see a widget that allows you to name a vocabulary, enter the values, and create it. This widget would also show you the vocabularies you have already created and offer you the ability to modify each.
On the entry form where the vocab is used, I could see possibility of having an 'other' in pulldown list and a box for users to enter something not on the list (assuming you wanted this, kinda defeats the closed list entry). these new entries could be dynamically added to list. Again, don't know if I would want this
this vocab would now be usable any place you can now choose a vocabulary.
Since I need this, unless there is an easier way, I will hire a programmer to get this done and open-source it.
However, I'd appreciate any comments before I begin to same me possible dead ends. Thanks
