{{{end template}}}
  • Create a set of Page pages with Country and City fields filled with data
  • Try to create a new page via a form

For what it's worth, with two dropdowns you can use "show on select" instead. It's kind of annoying, because then you have to define a different 2nd dropdown (with a different field name) for each value in the 1st dropdown, but it works.

Yes, that's a possible workaround, though it's not very convenient
