Hey Jeff,

You're correct, the page should still refresh the dropdown list, even when you edit it. I've done some testing locally (using version 3.13) using the same code as you've provided along with the Country and province sections and data from Simple Cart and the page refreshed successfully when I edited it.

When you edit the page, do you know if there are any Javascript errors? If you press Ctrl + Shift + J in Chrome any Javascript errors will appear in red in the log. Also, are you running any custom code or plugins on this site? Finally, which version of CMS Builder are you using?

I'm using CMSB 3.12.

I disabled all plugins except membership and permalinks. No javascript errors. I traced the execution of the javascript code in developer tools and it runs to completion with no errors, yet the list is not updated.

One other thing I did was replace the $ESCAPED_FILTER_VALUE with Canada, and it worked fine. It appears that the ESCAPED_FILTER_VALUE is not being picked up.

upgrading to 3.13 made no difference.

Hi Jeff,

I'll need to take a look at the setup in more detail to work out what's happening. Please, could you send the CMS login and FTP details for the site to
