Hello Loganathan,

Thank you very much for answering me, I really thought nobody was going to help me on this.

Attached goes an screenshot of what I am trying to accomplish. I would like to filter my search by content types. Please take a look at the image and feel free to ask me any questions in order to understand what I am trying to do.

I am using Custom Search module, but it is not displaying all my content types, only Users and Content. I need to filter the search by the ones you see on the screenshot which are the content types I created.

Thanks in advance

After digging the custom search module, I finally got it to work by filtering the custom types and adding the drop down feature that comes with the module
