multicheck is a lightweight jQuery plugin to convert select options into a multi checkbox set, allowing your user to select multiple options in an easy way.

How to use it:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.multicheck.js"></script>

2. Include the Twitter Bootstrap 3 to style the option labels (OPTIONAL).

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

3. Create a simple multi select list with 'multiple' attribute.

<select multiple="multiple">
  <option data-label-class="label label-danger" value="red">Red</option>

4. Call the plugin on the select list.

  label_wrap: '<div class="checkbox"></div>'
