I have tried to post this in the most relevant place, please forgive if I haven't followed any posting regulations as I'm new to the site.
I am currently attempting to create a search feature similar to the one found here http://www.s-h-a.co.uk/searchresults.php to return results according to a certain criteria.
Im assuming you store all the data in a SQL database and somehow link it in the site so that it queries the database when you click search, however I am not finding any solid information or tutorials on how to do this. I understand that researching MySQL and learning it is a mission on its own. But aside from that is MySQL the way to do it? Or are there any other solutions.
I will probably be using WordPress for the sites platform if that makes anything easier or harder.
Thanks, any information is greatly appreciated.
