Adding searchable database (4 posts)

    I'm a new user to WordPress - so would very much appreciate detailed/step-by-step instructions.

    I'm running a residents association site, and they want to have a searchable list/database of trusted tradespeople.

    Is there a plugin that would enable me to do this?

    If so, how the hell do I plug it in?

    Any downloads of plugins seem to download directly to my pc. I can see a load of files in there...is it just a case of cutting and pasting the PHP file copy...and if so where do I put it?

    Sorry for the multitude of questions

    Thanks in advance for any help :-)

    thanks for this.

    I should state I am using the wordpress.com not org

    I'm guessing I can't add plugins to that? :-(

    No, you can't use plugins on WordPress.COM and you're on the wrong forums - WordPress.COM support is here:


    Here's a comparison on the differences:


    Sounds like you might want to consider moving to a self-hosted site - if you need that kind of functionality.
