DD work in DW Templates?

Does or doesn't Dynamic Drop downs work in Dreamweaver Templates. I get the feeling the answer is no?

Any idea before I spend hours trying to get it to work?

Thanks,
Brad

A fix to have it work in templates was posted by Lee Firth in a different thread:

"I have just had the same problem and it was caused by the fact that the "Create Dynamic Array" code was being written in the "head" tag by the extension. Once I moved the code to before the doctype declaration it worked as expected."

I can confirm that once I moved the code from the head tag after applying the Create Dynamic Array extension, I was then able to complete the Dynamic Dropdown on a template page thanks to Lee.

Now to get it to submit and bring up the results as a search results page. Ideally I'd like to get it to bring up a DataAssist Results page. But I am totally lost on how one would go about that.

I think that I just responded to another thread of yours about using Dynamic Dropdowns on a search page. Essentially you will be editing a working search page by updating the existing text fields that you have with Dynamic Dropdown lists. You can then have a submit button, or have the form submitted with the onchange event in the final dropdown.
