Simple Selstore is a jQuery multiple select plugin that allows the user to select multiple items using checkboxes and stores the selected items in the HTML5 web storage.

Great for creating a tagging/tokenizing system that provides an easy way to select multiple items from predefined checkboxes. Supports both HTML5 localStorage and sessionStorage.

How to use it:

1. Insert multi-select items into checkboxes as follows:

<div id="example">
  <div>
    <label><input type="checkbox" value="1">jQuery</label>
  </div>
  <div>
    <label><input type="checkbox" value="2">Script</label>
  </div>
  <div>
    <label><input type="checkbox" value="3">.Net</label>
  </div>
  ...
</div>

2. Create a container element to display the selected items. Users are able to delete the selection by clicking the Close buttons.

<div id="myTags"></div>

3. Include jQuery library and the Simple Selstore plugin at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery-simple-selstore.js"></script>

4. Call the plugin on the parent container and specify the element in which the plugin outputs the selected items.

$('#example').simpleSelstore('#myTags');

5. Specify the Web Storage Objects to store the selected items in the local.

$('#example').simpleSelstore('#myTags',{
  store: 'local',  // or 'session'
  storeKey: 'custom key'
});

6. Specify the max number of items allowed to select.

$('#example').simpleSelstore('#myTags',{
  maxSelect: 2
});

7. Clear the selection.

$('#example').data('simple-selstore').clear();
