Firstly I'm not after what the "Search Album Title & Description" plugin does. :)

I'd like users to be able to view a dropdown box on the search page, that has the category and album structure in it. If they use it, the search is restricted to the images in that category/album.

Is this at all possible with CPG?

I really don't want to resort to using keywords to duplicate the name of the album - people won't be able to see what the album names are (yes, I'm using CPG for a strange application!) so it's going to be near impossible for users to guess the correct category/album. My categories are countries and states, and the albums are locations.

It's possible, but I don't think anyone has posted code for it.

Hrm, if I were more enterprising I'd do it myself. :(

Perhaps I should offer a bounty for it.
