    Hello All,

    I have been trying to find out how i can make a search form with a drop down list of categories included

    i can fine-tune a search query by adding the category to the search action url like so: yoursite.com/?s=stuff&cat=5
    ( example: http://tv.clhmedia.com/?s=murdock&cat=5 )

    but how can i include this into the search form so included in the search bar would be a list of categories to choose from???

    ive been looking for a while and cant find any useful resources. if any one knows of a plugin (for searching enhancements not just drop down categories) or an example php script that would be great

    i'm assuming if i cant do it directly from the search form i would have to make an additional php page for the search to call and perform the search action based on what category was chosen in the list
