Hello everybody,

I'm building a new site with Pagelines and would request special assistance.

Well, I want to offer a customized search engine on my new site, as this will be an advertising site, where I have registered several companies from various sectors. So, I want to allow users have a filter the search by category.

Example:

I will create several categories that will be the States of my Country and sub​​-categories that are the Cities of each state. So, I want that the user can choose which place he wants to search.

Well, I searched few plugins they can offer this, but not found.

In this case, only the search form, more two 'Select'. Being one for category and another for sub-category that appears when the user selects a category.

Well, here's an example of what I want:

If someone can give me a hint how I can do this, I'll be very happy and grateful. Or, if you know a plugin that has this functionality, even better! :D

The search system WordPress is very simple! Well they could offer something more sophisticated! :mellow:

Thank you!

Hi Danny, Thanks for the tip, I'll test this plugin. :)

But what I really wanted was a hint of how to implement the "Select" for categories alongside the search form of theme to filter the search by category.

I tried something like the example below, it works, but it brings all categories, I wanted to implement with other select for sub-categories according to the previously selected category.

I believe it is something complicated, you may need PHP code, so come help.

Anyway, I appreciate your help!
