I have a website where i manage to create a database, display it with the views module and add a Search box with Search API. I followed this tutorial: http://webwash.net/tutorials/how-create-search-pages-using-views-drupal-7

I'm using a bundle filter in my Index. My page only shows and search content from a specific content type. On that content type i have a field "category" with 2 radio options.

What i want to do is be able to filter the search by that category: If i choose option A, when i type my search it will only search the content within that category.

It must be really easy but i just can't figure it out. You guys have any ideas?

Thank you so much in advance!

You need to add an exposed filter to the view for the category field. Under the advanced settings in views you can select to display filters as a block so that you can place it above the search block.
