I am looking to create a website that creates and searches the created database then displays the results on a custom page. I initially thought this would be a lot easier than it is proving to be. I am looking to be pointed in a direction for me to research.
Here is an example of how I would like it to work.
I would like to have one database that is generated (through a separate feature on the website or that is transferred by excel or similar) that hosts the content of a select item. In my case it would be aspects of a book. (title, author, illustrator, age range, etc...) I would like the site to have a text search box and then different filters the users can choose.
When they made the selection, the database would be searched and return a list of matches.
I would most likely being using wordpress and dreamweaver to create the website.
Thank you for any guidance you can give me!
