I plan to create a website with a database of book information. I know how to use Microsoft Works to create a database and enter data into it, and I know HTML and CSS, and I want to use WordPress on this site. What I don't know is, how to, and if I can, integrate these things. I basically want to have a form where people can enter a title, author, synopsis, etc., and all that info will go into the appropriate fields in a database, where people can search (via the website) for the books in a database, whether by title, author, or any other data, and organize the data however they want. I want to use WordPress posts to display the data on a website.
Would I need two databases to do this? Can I use two databases on the same site? I appreciate any information, as well as suggestions, on doing this. Thank you.
