    Can anyone point me in the right direction to achieve something similar to the search form on this site http://www.fineartcommissions.com

    Not sure where to start, PHP?, Javascript? Please let me know if you can throw ANY light on the subject, thanks

    Well their drop down menus are just select tags. The searching itself is done with Adobe Cold Fusion and maybe MySQL (or some database). JavaScript won't be any help here.

    Well, I wasn't actually implying you should go with Cold Fusion, it's simply what they used. It's quite expensive as most Adobe software is. I'd go with PHP personally since it's free and has a lot of documentation and support.

    There is probably a Database behind that select tag. You might be in for more then you anticipated. Looks like it filters content.
