Hey there I'm going to try to make this as simplistic as possible: I am creating a site that does a specific search according to the parameters placed by the user. They will have three options of how to search, but in reality these operators have a mere aesthetic value. Simple MS Paint drawing: I need to know how to create that text box, a scrollable choice for the search parameter, and how to do the following with their search: I will have a url which will need to be split, have the searched text placed in a certain location, and then merged back into one url. ex. Searched text = 12345 http://somesite.com/blah/keyword=/newsearch/ This url would be changed into: http://somesite.com/blah/keyword=12345/newsearch/ Which could then be output in a manner of a link on the next page. Thanks and if you are confused, I'll do my best to try to convey my meaning.
