Hi,

on one of my forums www.callshub.com, i want to put a search in the top of every page
the search will be something like search all (*)buyers or (* )sellers for destination [ country_name ] , where () is the radio button and [] is the input box. based on that, the search term will be searched and posts displayed from either the buyers forum or the sellers forum. I am not sure how to start on this.

Please point me to the right direction to get started.


Thanks,

Lynne

What are buyers and sellers - prefixes? The right direction is the search.php page. If you look at the code there, you'll see the input name for the variables. Basically copy the from there - that's how I did it on some pages on my site anyway.

Hi,

Its like this:
those who post on http://www.callshub.com/sell-termination/ are sellers and those who post on http://www.callshub.com/buy-termination/ are buyers.

Basically, i want to do this this.

search for (*) buyers for destination [ spain ] => will search and show all posts that contains spain from within the buy-termination forum

search for (*) sellers for destination [ spain ] => will search and show all posts that contains spain from within the sell-termination forum.

I can do the same if i go to advanced search, put spain in the keyword and select buy-termination or sell-termination forum, but I want to cut the steps and provide this search facility directly to the visitors from a simple form somewhere above or below the navbar.

So those are forums? They have forumids. So, find the name of the input field for the forumid and then use radio buttons to select the forumid.
