Well this works quite perfectly, but as soon as you use it in your project the drop down doesn't work, like u can select only once.

I have followed everything properly keeps CSS and JS on <head></head> and the script in <body> </body> but it misbehaves.

This form acts more like a jumplist menu than a search form. As soon as I select the filter item, the "form" jumps to that page, not allowing me enter a search term. Counter-intuitive design.
