I have created a search form that allows people to search for a specific service within any county of the UK. The counties are categories, the services are a links field.

The search form (cut down version) looks like this...

<input type="hidden" name="serviceslistcondition" value="and" />
<select name="serviceslistsearch">
<option>1 hour lessons</option>
<option>1.5 Hour lessons</option>
<option>2 Hour Lessons</option>
</select>
 In:
<input type="hidden" name="catidcondition" value="=" />
<select name="catidsearch">
<option value="47"> Aberdeenshire</option>
<option value="48"> Angus</option>
<option value="94"> Antrim</option>
</select>
<input type="submit" value="Search" class="button">
</form>

Now if someone adds a driving school to the Aberdeenshire category, and aliases the link to the Angus category, and selects that they provide 1 hour lessons...

...and a user searches for "1 hour lessons in Angus", why does their link not come up? is it because it is just aliased to that category? If so, is there a way to make links come up in a search for a category, even if they are just aliased to that category?

Aliases aren't searched, since that would open up the possibility of the same result showing multiple times. I'll make an exception for searches which specify catid.
