  • I’m creating a product search functionality for a website I’m working on. The generated HTML code look something like the following:

    <form action="<?=bloginfo('siteurl')?>" id="searchform" method="get">
    
       <input type="text" name="s" placeholder="Search for..." />
    
       <select style="background:#fff; width:180px; border:none; padding:10px;" name="s">
          <option name="cookers">Cookers</option>
          <option name="refrigerators">Refrigerators</option>
          <option name="clerical">Clerical</option>
          <option name="drinks-facilities">Drinks Facilities</option>
       </select>
    
       <input type="submit" value="Search" id="searchsubmit" />
    
    </form>

    The URL at present is ‘http://siteurl.com/search/searchterm’ and I’m unable to pass the selected category to the url to then display only products within the selected category.

    Any suggestions? Or anyone know of any plugins worth a look?

    Disclaimer: Don’t judge me on the inline styling 😉 that will go on the live site.
