How to add searchable database of 100 suppliers, return location based results? (3 posts)

    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for creating A search function within wordpress for a database of 100 suppliers / clients, that returns results based on the input of a uk postcode?

    A bit like a 'store locator', that you might find on a supermarket's website, like sainsburys...:

    Are there any online services / plugins etc that could make an easy job of this?

    Many thanks,

    FWIW here's my findings...:

    1) There's this online service, which looks the easiest, best, but at a cost:
    postcode anywhere. They provide the store locator for pizzahut in the UK.

    2) There's Google Custom Search, which I believe you can populate with sites you define, but I can't see how this could be worked into store locator like functionality.

    3) Then, there's Creating a Store Locator with PHP, MySQL & Google Maps

    4) and also there's this article, Building a store locator using WordPress and Pods CMS

    Useful info thanks.
    I'm trying to find something to build a database of bands/entertainers which could be searchable by site visitors. But not been able to so far.
