Those links are built using the bar_link routine. This routine
uses the data from the cat table.
I suggest you alter the data in the cat table as follows:

Do the following for each entry in the cat table:
1. Change the link_type from 'Simple search' to 'Complex search'
2. Clear the selector field
3. Add following info to search field. Example for category 'Step Stools':

se=Step Stools

Good luck !
