I am trying to create a good UI for the main page of my website. I need to ask 4 questions to users in easiest possible way-
- Query terms - e.g toyota Corola
- Category (optional) - e.g. Cars
- Location (optional) - e.g Elizabeth Street, Sydney
- Distance (optional) from the above location - e.g. 10 km (looking for an aesthetic way, in case a user dont want to filter upto a certain distance)
Whats the best way to ask the above questions without bothering the user with too much details as only the Query terms are the required part. Other questions are really optional.
How should I lay down my user interface?
