    Hello Russ,

    did you find a solution o your problem?

    I am looking for the same thing: restrict search to one or more categories.

    I envision a search page which shows a list of my categories along with a checkbox each, and a search field. Search would be restricted to checked categories.

    Is something like this available, or something near enough to take as a starting point?

    best regards,
    Stephan

    I recall a rant from somewhere about WordPress search capabilities. If I remember correctly, you'd have to write your own SQL queries to do that kind of customized searches.

    But I also remember from that rant that someone seems to have written a plug-in along the lines of an "Advanced Search" or so.

    Sorry, though, I cannot recall from where it was.

    Hope this helps.
