Question

hi. searching and searching to no avail.

 

i need to implement a search form, like the one illustrated in the attached file.

 

i don't even know what to look for; been going around in circles.

 

what should i be looking for, and can you rec something that will work well w pl framework?

 

example: i need the user to be able to search my posts, using a dropdown, for this sort of thing--

 

restaurant type:

asian

italian

mexican

 

location:

downtown

midtown

 

etc. thank you.

The second link I provided should do just that.  If not, conduct that search or, if you prefer a premium plugin try CodeCanyon.net.

Suzy,

 

There's no way to easily code this yourself.  You'll have to use a plugin.  Some that may work are:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-search-by-my-solr-server/

or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advance-wp-query-search-filter/

 

As you know, these customizations are outside the scope of our support.

Suzy, don't freak out, but I searched WP.org for 'search', without the single quotes.
