I'm trying to create a field that allows you to add your skill from a select list, and the level of your skill.

i.e. skill football, level medium.

I may create the taxonomy in this way Football -Low -Medium -High and the use hierarchical taxonomy but it means that I need to add the level per each term.

Is there a way to attach a vocabulary to another vocabulary? in this way I may create a vocabulary skills with all the skills and one vocabulary level with 3 terms. Is there a module or a better technique?

Thanks in advance

Yes, that type of field configuration is possible with


Conditional fields

version is -dev for D7 but works well.


Without knowing how you're planning to use this in a larger context, here's what I would do:

  1. Create a vocabulary (or possibly just a plain text field with a select list) for "skill"
  2. Create a second field with a dropdown list for skill level (I probably wouldn't use a taxonomy for this).
  3. Make the second field dependent on the first, per this Stackoverflow question about fieldsets and conditions
