Searchable Tables

Permalink
We have a list of about 50 businesses with their name, address, city, state, zip, and phone number. We want to be able to give users the option of searching by city and zip. What's the best way to approach this? Thanks.

You could use something like Easy Tables

The usual approach is to make each business a page. You don't need to show or index those pages, just use them as something to attach attributes to for the various business properties.

If you want an easy form to manage such pages, have a look at 'Best Suite Core'.

You can now provide an index of the businesses using any of the many page list variations, making sure there is no actual link to the page (unless you actually want that).

My Uber List + Magic Data addons provide one way to achieve that. There are many others in the marketplace.
