there are bunch of dropdown functions, like wp_categories_dropdown(), wp-pages-dropdowns, users and etc (i dont remember even).

It was good, there was common wp_dropdown function, which will accept $type as argument (or in array):

wp_dropdown(array('type'=>'pages', ..... ))
wp_dropdown(array('type'=>'categories', ..... ))
wp_dropdown(array('type'=>'users', ..... ))
or so on

same could be done with other similar functions, like, instead of wp_category_checklist there was wp_checklist, accepting different types..

  • Component changed from General to Administration
  • Keywords 2nd-opinion close added
  • Priority changed from normal to low

Adding a generic PHP dropdown function doesn't seem like a worthy use of time at present, especially as more user interfaces slowly move to a Javascript-based approach (where dropdowns will hopeufully be a lot smoother and handle larger-sites)
