    I have a client that would like a page dedicated for searching business partners. right now the page just has one big list of business partners. I apologize if this is in another thread.
    ———————————————-
    EXAMPLE
    1. BUSINESS TYPE
    Zone/Region
    Company Name
    Contact Name
    Email
    Phone
    2. BUSINESS TYPE
    Zone/Region
    Company Name
    Contact Name
    Email
    Phone
    3.
    4.
    so on and so on
    ———————————————-
    Will this plugin be able to filter a huge list by the zone/region? To have a dropdown box and/or search bar on a page and be able to choose the region you want and have the available business partners in that zone/region pop up? Also, is there a trial version of the Pro version?

    Hey there

    Sure S&F free would probably do the job.

    S&F works with all kinds of data, but to work with what you describe you would need a data structure similar to the following:

    1. A custom post type for Business Partners (this could be any post type, but its best to create new ones for specific purposes in your site)

    2. The attributes such as Zone/Region will need to be a custom taxonomy (they are really easy to create, work the same as WP tags & categories) and you will need to add the value for the zone/region manually to each business.

    Thats about it – then you can use S&F to create a dropdown based on the zone/region taxonomy.

    You *could* also have zone/region as a custom field, in which case you would need to get Pro – as Pro supports custom fields.

    Thanks
