    I’ve searched on the knowledge base and support/comments but can’t find my exact question.

    Can I make separate Search boxes for specific categories?

    I want to be able to search by by main topics. (I have 6)

    I would like each topic – or parent category – to have a dropdown of all its child categories.

    I’d like to display these topics across the top of my Homepage (www.adamlambertmedia.com)

    The search filters would be like this:

    CANDID ALBUM TOURS QUEEN TOURS INTERVIEWS DISCOGRAPHY ARCHIVES

    Each of these would have a drop-down of the categories that belong to that topic.

    By the way, your plugin is unbelievably good! I have been able to use it out of the box. I just need help with the above question.

    Thanks

    Hi Isla,

    Thank you very much for your kind words!

    I’m not sure I udnerstand correctly, but I guess you want to create 6 separate search boxes to restrict the search to content from one speific parent-child category each. I believe this is what you are looking for: https://wp-dreams.com/knowledge-base/searching-within-given-categoriestaxonomy-terms-only/

    Then I guess for the filters you can create the taxonomy term filters for each search box, by choosing which categories to display for each search instance on the Frontend search settings -> Categories & Taxonomy terms panel.

    Best,
    Ernest Marcinko
