Hi Wordpress Experts!

I've been googling my brains out for the last couple of hours, but can't find any answer to my question. So I need help.

I have a plain template that uses the built-in Wordpress search form. And it works perfectly for finding posts. But I want to be able to search for categories as well.

If the search string matches a category name, I want ALL posts in that category on the search results page.

Hope you guys can help. Thanks.
