Database content management plugins? (6 posts)

    I am looking for a hack or plugin to help me manage bulk content. for example, lets say I use WordPress to manage a website that has an inventory of books. What I was planning on doing was creating categories for the common headings, Author, Title, etc... I would enter each book as a post, then I would want to be able to display a list of them on a page, either alphabetically or by some other sort order... I figured I would need a page for Author, a page for Title, etc... in order to display the proper content on each page...

    First of all, I am not sure if categories and posts are the proper choice, and second, I am not able to accomplish what I want with the standard install...

    Can someone help out with a plugin or suggest a hack? Maybe link to a tutorial or code example?

    I hope this makes sense...

    Thanks!!

    Well, I wonder that we don't have success finding a database plugin for content management. I believe there are many needs and it would be phantastic if someone of the cracks would help creating a solution.
    I think problem description is easy.
    Data should be stored in a flat list with a header line. Retrieval of data should be supported by sort and filter functions applicable on each of the fields within the list. Since I am using heavily EXCEL, the functionality offered there seems to be exactly what we are looking for.
    HELP, please!
    Even I would become a true fan of our hero.
    Thanks, Paul
