Hi,

I am trying to figure out if there is a simple way to add a dropdown in the search bar I created? I created the view using the legacy editor and I would like to add additional filter options to be viewable if clicked on a dropdown called "More Filters"

Thanks,
Simcha

Hello,

There isn't such kind of built-in feature within Toolset Views/Blocks plugin, you can consider custom codes, for example, edit your post view:
1) In section "Search and Pagination", add a text link + a hidden HTML div, like this:

<a href="#" class="show-more">Show more filters</a>
<div class="more-filter" style="display:none;">
Put filters here...
</div>

2) In the "JS Editor", add below JS codes:

jQuery( ".show-more" ).click(function() {
  jQuery( ".more-filter" ).toggle( "slow", function() {
    // Animation complete.
  });
});

More help:
hidden link
