WordPress has a build-in search system which actually allows searching posts in certain one or mutiple category(s), month archive(s) and tag(s). However, by default you must manually add extra GET/ POST parameter to search query to enable these features.

This plugin enhanced the wordpress search form so visitors can submit a more advanced search query via XHTML visual Form, allowing setting conditions that posts should be in some category(s), publish in which month, having some tag(s) and other conditions. Mutiple conditions are allowed and connected by AND Boolean operation.
