I've got a search form using Low Search where I want to restrict results to only one specific channel. I've created a collection called "galleries" and a shortcut called "galleries" and this code below:

  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="keywords" class="sr-only">Search our Colorado Trips</label>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="keywords" name="keywords" placeholder="Search our Galleries">
  <button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Go</button>

But no matter what I do the results page shows results for all channels not just the Galleries channel

Low provided a solution to me on the EE slack channel.

All I needed to do was add a hidden field with the collection name or id as the value.

<input type="hidden" name="collection" value="4">
