Setting up a searchable video gallery

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I can't find much on this workaround so here goes; I'm trying to make a searchable Video Gallery for 7.1 based site.
As you need to post videos as separate blocks and can't draw a feed from a gallery, like images, I'm looking at a blog for the ref engine and video posts. This then allows tagging and categories for search bar. BUT.. Ideally, we would like a button to search for specific categories, instead of having the user randomly search with a text input. My CSS is no-where near this level so looking for clickable function for a button to replicate a search term input. ie, a presenters name.
The search filter seems to work well otherwise.
The only other issue I can see is if we protect this area as a members area from Google ref, It will affect the internal search. I think?
Any ideas?

Hi @Mark_RM

Considering what you are trying to achieve here you might want to have a look into setting up a link to categories and/or tags. You could even set up that link using a Button Block, if you would like. Check the help guides below for more details:
