Choosen nicely supports deselection in single select mode. You only have to ensure that the first option tag is empty. Unfortunately, this no longer works with ajax-choosen.

It would be great if that was included.


@MarcDD I found this issue that is related to your question: #31

However, I have tested this myself and have yet to make this work. Will update you otherwise.


@MarcDD I have verified that this works, check the link in the previous comment.



$(document).ready(function() {


type: 'GET',
url: '<?php echo base_url(); ?>frieght-admin/addseo_other/getsuburb',
dataType: 'json'

}, function (data) {
var results = [];

$.each(data, function (i, val) {
    results.push({ value: val.value, text: val.text });

return results;

},{"allow_single_deselect": true ,no_results_text: "Oops, nothing found!"}



this is not working....

"allow_single_deselect": true ,no_results_text: "Oops, nothing found!"
still showing same looking message ...and dropdwon is still not de selectable ...
using all latest files for jquery....


I can't get this to work either!.. with same field I try just using .chosen({ allow_single_deselect:true }) and that works, but not with ajaxChosen


Oops it DOES work. I had to put the extra chosen JSON as an additional field. I was appending it to the ajaxChosen options in first argument which wasn't working.
