    Hello,
    We are a nonprofit and are new to WordPress. We are trying to figure out how best to create a simple data-driven site we need, and we would appreciate your help in understanding whether the Listdom – Advanced Directory and Listing Plugin would meet our needs.

    Background:
    All we need is a simple site with one directory type of page. It should look exactly like this https://changingthepresent.org/collections/george-washington-high-school-10002

    There are 140k schools, each of which will have a page like that. We need each school page to have its own URL so schools can link directly to their page.

    We do not need a way to search for the schools, as that will happen on a separate site.

    Each of the “products” will be a student or a donation opportunity. Those pages will not be on the WP site. ALL the links on the school pages will go to a separate site. Student “products” have two links (profile and wish list, each on a separate site).

    We may have as many as 2k “products” in some schools, and a total of 5M – 10M products. Of course, we need pagination and caching.

    We do need the filtering by tag as you see on the left WITHIN a school (not site-wide), and we vastly prefer compound tags like that so we can group them.

    Search within a school would be nice but not essential, so long as we can filter on the left and show alphabetized results.

    The two forms at the bottom are just iframe embeds.

    Questions:

    • Can we do the above-mentioned with Listdom – Advanced Directory and Listing Plugin?
    • Do you let us add what I think is called Custom Post Types to accommodate the specific fields we need?
    • Do you recommend a specific theme? Again, we want it to look exactly like the page at that URL I cited.
    • How does it integrate with the MySQL database?
    • Do you provide tools to manage the connection to that database?
    • We want to be able to add new products on the fly as we add them. Can we do that with Google Sheets, Zapier, Integromat, or something?
    • Do you recommend a specific hosting company for this? 5 to 10M records and 500k to 2M visits per month?

    Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated!!
    Thank you very much!
