this works fine for me.

I have one database and restrict the search part
according to a field selected. (either staff pages or
cti centre pages or dept pages only or all of them)

look at to see what I mean.

http://www.york.ac.uk/depts/psych/www/search/advsearch.html

(it says ....

<input type=hidden name=config value="psyadv">
<input type=hidden name=exclude value="">
<select name=restrict>
<option value="">all Psychology related pages
<option value="www.york.ac.uk/depts/psych/">Depatrmental Psychology only
<option value="www.york.ac.uk/inst/ctipsych/">CTI Centre for Psychology only
<option value="www.york.ac.uk/~">Psychology Staff and Postgrads only
</select>

....)

BTW
the way the restrict varibles and other things works seems
a bit strange to me. Ive looked through the soure very briefly to try
and figure out how the default and config and query varibles are related
and its a bit muddled in my mind at the moment.

Id like them to be able to put the restrict in the config file
and have it use - which does not and does work! it
doesnt work for the initial search but does on subsequent pages where it
has been put into $RESTRICT env varible by htsearch.
