Problem restricting search results

I am having a problem offering a drop-down menu to restrict the search results to specific directories (and subdirectories) of the following website:

www.curzonholdings.co.uk

The results currently remain the same irrespective of the selection on the drop down.

I have followed instructions found elsewhere on the forum, but I must be missing somthing.

Problem with restricting search results

I am attempting to use the "path" variable to restrict the serch results to a specific directory on the website. However this does not seem to restrict the results.

This is the code in my webpages:

<form action='http://www.curzonholdings.co.uk/phpdig/search.php' method='get'>
<tr>
<td valign="top"><img src="images/vertical_divider_main.gif" alt="Vertical Divider" name="vertical_divider" width="16" height="35" border="0" id="vertical_divider" title="Vertical Divider" /></td>
<td valign="bottom">
<input type='hidden' name='refine' value='2'/> <input type='hidden' name='site' value='1'/>
<input type='hidden' name='result_page' value='search.php'/>
<input name='query_string' type="text" id="query_string" style="font-family:Verdana; font-size:11px; height:18px; width:120px; margin-right: 5px" onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value=''" value="Search" />
</td>
<td valign="bottom">

<select name="path" id="path">
<option selected='selected' value=''>All of Curzon </option>
<option value='curzon_interiors/%'>Curzon Interiors </option>
<option value='tcl_granby/%'>TCL Granby </option>
<option value='task_systems/%'>Task Systems</option>
<option value='strategic_mm/%'>Strategic MM</option>
</select>
</td>
<td valign="bottom">
<input type='image' name='search' value='Go' src="images/buttons/go.gif" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('search','','images/buttons/go_over.gif',1)" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" alt="Search button" width="31" height="19" border="0" id="search" style="margin-left: 5px" title="Search button"/>
</td>
</tr>
</form>

The site is currently up and running but it won't be long before my client spots this failing: www.curzoninteriors.co.uk

Hope you can help.

Anybody got an idea on this? I'm tearing my hair out.

I have also noticed that the url generated for the search often includes some hex-type elements eg:

http://www.curzonholdings.co.uk/phpdig/search.php?
refine=2&site=1&result_page=search.php&query_string=word&path=curzon_interi ors%2F%25&search.x=7&search.y=8

Not sure if this is relevant.

Hope someone can help me

Yes, I have read through the thread.

And I am trying to achieve exactly the same result as laurentxav. The only difference that I can see is that I am allowing the path variable to be chosen by using a drop-down selection.

The path variable is included on the resulting link, but it dosn't seem to do anything (I have tried deleting it and it does not change the results in any way).

I am stumped, and would realy apprecaite any insights.
