I am working with a local non-profit group that is restoring a historic mausoleum. They needed a website that was easy to edit for their team and we started with Joomla, but WP seemed to be the way to go in the end, as it is easier to use on the backend. That being said, we had found a plugin for Joomla that allowed us to create a searchable database of all those who are entombed in the mausoleum along with pertinent location data (like 2nd floor, column N, etc). I'm trying to find something similar in WP but no luck so far.
Does anyone know of a plug-in that would allow us to create this searchable area of the website? If it comes down to it, we could create an individual post for each person entombed and then make a page that links by name... but that's a LOT of work. What I'm looking for is maybe something like a contact list manager that has customizable fields for things like location in the building, obituary, photo, etc.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm still fairly new to WP and learning it as I go.
