    I hope this is the right forum to post these kind of questions

    How do I ammend the Amazon.co.uk (or .com) search box to only search for one type of product. In my case, I just want it to search for videos.

    At the moment I've just deleted all the option value's to leave DVD and Video:

    <SELECT NAME="mode">
    <OPTION VALUE="video">DVD and Video
    </SELECT>

    But there is still a drop-down menu, albeit with only one option. How do I ammend the script to accept the OPTION VALUE=video as default and not have a drop-down menu?

    I know it's a very basic ammendment, but I'm too experienced with these things

    Thank you VERY much.

    Here's my current script:

    <FORM METHOD="get" ACTION="http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/external-search">
    <TABLE BORDER="0" CELLPADDING="1" cellspacing="0" BGCOLOR="#000000"><TR><TD>
    <TABLE BORDER="0" CELLPADDING="2" cellspacing="0" align="center" BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">
    <TR BORDER="0">
    <TD BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" align="RIGHT" valign="middle">
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size="-2"><B>
    Search/B></font></TD>
    <TD BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" align="left" valign="middle">
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size="-2">
    <SELECT NAME="mode">
    <OPTION VALUE="video">DVD and Video
    </SELECT>
    </font></TD>
    <TR BORDER="1">
    <TD BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" align="RIGHT" valign="middle">
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size="-2"><B>
    Keywords/B></font></TD>
    <TD BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" align="left" valign="middle">
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size="-2">
    <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="keyword" SIZE="10" VALUE="">
    <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="tag" VALUE="litmaniacom">
    <INPUT TYPE="image" BORDER="0" VALUE="Go" NAME="Go" src="http://www.associmg.com/assoc/uk/pdm-search-go-btn.gif?tag-id=litmaniacom" ALIGN=absmiddle></font></TD>
    </TR>

    Thank you once again for your help guys!

    Replace:

    <SELECT NAME="mode">
    <OPTION VALUE="video">DVD and Video
    </SELECT>

    with:

    <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="mode" VALUE="video">

    Thanks mate that works great!

    Only thing I can't understand is why you're called 'chicken'

    Hee hee, no problem. Hmmm, maybe you can think of at least one reason if you check woobster.com (a pointless site I put up about 2 years ago).

    Is that you dressed as a chicken on the website? It's hilarious!

    That's me... sure it doesn't *answer* any question, rather than pose more, but yep, that's me.
